Do you have a SmartPass card and enjoy using it? The Department for Infrastructure is seeking views on changes to the Department’s policy on free and discounted fares on public transport under the Northern Ireland Concessionary Fares Scheme.
The Northern Ireland Concessionary Fares Scheme was established to promote accessible public transport for members of the community who are most at risk of social exclusion. It aims to do so by providing free and discounted fares on public transport for some groups of people.
The Department is seeking views on changes that they are thinking about making to the Scheme (now and in the future). These changes are aimed at:
- Reducing the costs of the Scheme so that it can continue to be provided for years to come; and
- Ensuring the Scheme is targeted at members of the community who are most vulnerable, or liable, to social exclusion.
