Have you taken advantage of concessionary travel?

West Oxfordshire District Council would like to hear from residents who have taken advantage of the concessionary travel scheme introduced earlier this year.

The scheme was launched in April across England to entitle anyone over 60 to a free pass to travel on all local bus networks in the country.

The Council is interested to find out how people have used their passes and is particularly keen to hear from anyone who has an interesting or quirky story to tell perhaps they had never travelled by bus before receiving a pass, or maybe they have visited places they had never seen before getting a pass, or perhaps they have rekindled friendships thanks to the pass, or even met new friends on their travels.

Anyone who has a tale to tell can contact the Council via its website, www.westoxon.gov.uk, by emailing communications@westoxon.gov.uk or by writing to: Communications Team. West Oxfordshire District Council, Woodgreen, Witney, OX28 1NB.
