Consultation on concessionary rail travel for older people


West Sussex County Council is consulting on a proposed change to its concessionary travel scheme.

There will be no changes to ‘free bus pass’ travel for older and disabled people in West Sussex.

It is proposed that the County Council will no longer offer a free Senior Railcard as an alternative to the Older Person’s Bus Pass (Disabled Person’s Railcards will still be available to qualifying applicants).

Before any decision is made, we are keen to gather feedback from passengers and others to help us understand the impact of this change.
