I WOULD like to put right what I said re concessionary fares in yesterday’s Adver (December 2).

In Sussex, like Bath, the concessionary bus pass starts at 9am, even Oxford bus users have the same privilege. So if I travel to Oxford from Swindon bus station at 9.15am I pay for a fare to Shrivenham, then it’s 9.33am, so I am then permitted to travel free to Oxford.

As for the cost to alter the times on Thamesdown buses, I understand that the government pumps quite a considerable sum of money towards the concessionary fares, so come on Swindon, be more considerate towards your elderly passengers and let us travel free from 9am.
