The current Free Seniors Bus Travel Initiative is set to finish 28 August 2015. Will it continue past this date?
The recently adopted City Budget 2015/16 has committed enough funds for the initiative to continue until 30 June 2016.
However, as the City funds this initiative in conjunction with Surfside Buses and Translink, it is up to the State Government to have the final say on whether it can continue.
Mayor Tom Tate has recently written to the Deputy Premier and Transport Minister, Hon Jackie Tradd MP urging her to extend the trial.
