Is this OK?
Tuesday 31 March
Despite recent stories in the media, Metro is confirming that
people with English National Concessionary Passes are still
entitled to free, off-peak travel on local bus services throughout
Some people have been ringing MetroLine to ask if they can still
use their National Concessionary Pass, after the Government
announced it is making some slight changes to the services on which
the passes can be used.
"These changes have been to close a few loopholes in the
original scheme and only affect services on which you have to
pre-book a seat, such as coaches or sightseeing buses," explained
Metro Chairman Cllr Chris Greaves.
"In West Yorkshire, you can still use you National Concessionary
Pass for nearly all scheduled services from a bus stop anywhere,"
"The only exceptions are overnight NightRider services, some
works services and school services."
