A friend of mine was asked to sign a petition against Bradford's plan to abolish free buss passes for senior citizens. Has anyone heard anything in this regard?

I've just done a quick Google search on it, which did not bring anything up about removing he passes. It was however, in the T&A a few weeks ago about Bradford removing free transport for children going to schools in North Yorkshire - www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk/news/11134283.Free_school_bus_travel_to_be_scrapped_for_many_Bradford_pupils___new_passes_will_cost_up_to___370/

I don't think Bradford could do that, even if they wanted to - it's a national scheme, not a local one. Some places offered locally-decided upon extras (free tram or local train travel for instance), at their own expense, and have had to scale that back due to cuts (Sheffield for example), but the basic package isn't up for discussion.
