    No one is stopping older people using the bus just their pass before 9.30. The council has to pay the bus companies to subsidise the pass before 9.30. The bus company asks for a subsidy because before 9.30 is their busiest time. The council cannot now afford to pay this subsidy so the bus company does not allow the pass to be used before 9.30.

    Darlington council has to pay the bus company to allow older people to use the bus free before 9 30 am. This government is forcing the council to make some awful cuts in the money that they spend and this is just one of them…it’s not going to get much better in the near future!!
