Essex County Council is consulting on the use of the older person’s bus pass on County Council run Park and Ride services in Essex.  We are consulting on: 

  • Reducing the charge for people using the disability-based bus pass before 9am on Park and Ride service. Currently holders of the disability-based bus pass must pay full fare before 9am, we are proposing to cut this to £1.50p and after 9.00 for the fare to continue to be free. 
  • Currently all older-person’s bus pass holders travel for free after 9am. We are consulting on charging older-person’s bus pass holders a £1.50 day fare at all times on all Park and Ride services in Essex. 

If you have any queries please contact: passenger.transport@essex.gov.uk

The consultation commences from 08 May and will run until 31 July  2019 it will be available online at : www.essex.gov.uk/park-and-ride-fares-consultation
