Motion text

That this House calls on the Government to extend the concessionary bus fares scheme to allow everyone under 16 years and those able to prove they are in full-time education or on a work-based learning scheme free travel on buses nationwide; notes the application and success of such a scheme for those who live in London boroughs; and recognises the positive outcomes of such a scheme, in offering greater social inclusion and increased mobility for those with limited incomes, reduction of traffic on the school run and the environmental benefits arising from more people making bus travel their viable routine choice.
