Travel across England by bus - for FREE!
On 1st April 2008 an exciting new travel scheme comes into effect for the over-60s and eligible disabled people in England. Now you can travel FREE on local buses anywhere in England between 9.30am and 11pm on weekdays and all day weekends and public holidays. So you can go pretty much where you want, when you want.

Be good for me in 18yrs time.

Is this a deal?
I have one of these cards because I am registered disabled but would never consider it a deal...the same way I wouldn't consider the free use of crutches/frame/commode a deal.
Maybe I'm wrong but as my Dad put it when my Mum told him he was 'lucky' that he had one....'
I would rather have another 7 years than travel free on the buses'.

Okay excluding the point of being disabled (I agree with what you've said) but see it from an over 60's point of view. Though I thought this was the case anyway or was it just local buses?

I thought this was more of a info type post rather than a deal,was'nt sure were to post,but like a lot of others,i thought this was already available,apparantly not,as you see,so this should be seen as info.....as i never mentioned this was any kind of deal.
If anyone has took offence to this,I can only apoligise,

You've not caused offence to me, but I view it the same as my blue badge and nhs equipment.
I just didn't see it as a deal.
It is posted in the deals section, therefore it will be seen as posted as a deal.
Maybe it would have been one for the Misc section?
It is good info for thse eligible as I doubt the Government will advertise it much so it is good that you posted it. :thumbsup:
I'm not sure about the availability either as I got mine a couple weeks ago and am allowed to use it now.


Just thought, the freebie section might be a good place to move it?

It was just local but they have made it nationwide now.
I did see it from the over 60's point of view as my post explained.
My Dad is 68 and not impressed...however my Mum is actually wishing away the next 2 years of her life so she can get one! If she was on here she would vote it steaming hot!

Maybe they can do one for Europe in future :-D that would have saved me £2,500 :thumbsup:

always good to see the elderly being considered for a change

voted hot

Perhaps I'm senile already but Norfolk doesn't appear to be part of England anymore according to Arriva. Maybe they think we all have our own tractors here!
