Concessionary travel victory for freedom riders

Cllr Jillian Creasy at Sheffield Town HallDear Sir
It is very good news that the Integrated Transport Authority is going to restore concessionary travel for OAPs and the disabled. Back in February, the Green Councillors called on the Sheffield councillors who represent the city on the South Yorkshire Authority to fight this cut, but our motion was voted down by the Labour administration. We are so pleased that Freedom Rides by brave OAPs and the legal case brought by two disabled bus users have caused a change of heart. Now we just need to do the same for the Freebee city centre bus and Community Transport!
