Peak time prices have increased for disabled travel pass holders

Lancashire County Council is reminding people who have a disabled NoWcard that it now costs £1 to travel at peak times on weekday mornings.

The mandatory national concessionary travel scheme allows holders of a disabled persons pass to travel for free between 9.30am and 11.00pm Monday to Friday, and all day at weekends and bank holidays.

Councils which operate the scheme locally have discretion to offer further concessions outside these times.

The NoWcard scheme allows holders of a disabled person’s pass to travel at a lower flat fare on journeys on local buses, which begin before 9.30am on Mondays to Fridays.

The charge for people who live within the Lancashire County Council boundary increased from 50p to £1 from Monday 3 December. There has been no increase of the 50p charge for over 10 years.
