Members of the Metro's Integrated Transport Authority's
Executive Committee have approved a new rate of 50p for
concessionary off-peak train travel in west Yorkshire.
The 15p rise is the first since 2005.
It means that the county's concessionary card holders, including
people over 60 who now also have free off-peak local bus travel

50p fare after 9.30am Monday to Friday and all day at weekends and
on Bank Holidays.
