Pensioners and Public Transport

Back to all Motions

2003 Retired Members' Conference
26 June 2003

Conference notes that pensioners in Wales, Greater London, the West Midlands, (former county area), and elsewhere have obtained free concessionary travel.

Conference believes that the time is now right to launch a concerted campaign to obtain free transport throughout Great Britain. Such free transport to mean the introduction of a pensioners’ travel card for both rail and bus services.

Conference requests the National Retired Members’ Committee to ask UNISON to lead this campaign utilising the Labour Link.
