Notification of Consultation on changes to the use of Concessionary Bus Passes on Essex County Council run Park and Ride services May 2019


Further to our notification below, as we are now over the half way point of the consultation, please continue to promote the consultation on your website pages and other information areas.


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.
