Bus Services after the Spending Review - Transport Committee Contents

Written evidence from Peterborough Pensioners Association (BUS 05)

I am chairman of Peterborough Pensioners Association. I verify our members need the bus pass to get to our meetings and visit friends also to get to the doctors and hospital appointments. It is essential having the bus pass to enable older people to leave their homes and so stop becoming isolated, lonely and ill.

The measly pension, in some cases £75 a week which is all too common is not enough to live on let alone go to social clubs one day a week. We need the free bus pass it is a necessity not a luxury.
