Bus passes: timing restrictions lifted

Cheshire East Council has lifted timing restrictions on travel for holders of concessionary bus passes. The move is to help support the Covid-19 vaccine roll out for elderly people and disabled residents.

Now, all English national travel concessionary bus pass holders are allowed to travel free of charge before 9.30am each day. All bus operators have been told about the change and asked to inform their staff.

Councillor Craig Browne, deputy leader of Cheshire East Council, said: “This is excellent news for our more-vulnerable residents as it allows concessionary bus pass holders greater flexibility to attend vaccination appointments. “It is really vital – for everyone’s health – that people attend on time to get their jab, when invited to attend a vaccination centre.
