§ Ms Keeble
The Transport Act 2000 guarantees that disabled people are entitled to at least half fares or better on local bus services, with a free bus pass. In addition the Transport Act 1985 (outside London) and the Greater London Authority Act 1999 (London) give local authorities the discretion to provide concessionary travel for their resident disabled people on public transport services.
The provisions in all three Acts extend the concessions to a wide range of disabled people. It is for local authorities to decide whether a person is eligible for concessionary travel given the definitions of the Acts.
