Faisal calls on the Government to introduce free bus travel for those under the age of 19

I am aware that for many people, especially those who are younger, bus services are a lifeline.

The Government has stated that it recognises that public transport is of particular importance to young people. Yet, it has no plans to implement a national bus concession for young people.

I have recently asked the Government the following written question: ‘To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will fund local authorities to provide free bus travel for people under the age of 25.’

As MP, I have also written to Warrington Borough Council to raise a number of issues that I believe need addressing in order to create a service that meets the needs of everyone who lives in and around our town. I hope that Warrington can introduce progressive plans that central government is not willing to do.
