Campaigners have backed a ‘partial victory’ in their fight against travel cuts after a new deal was brought to the table.

Plans to reverse a decision on concessionary travel for disabled people – so they can ride free on buses, trains or trams – will now be put to transport chiefs on May 19.

Pensioners could also be given half price rail travel under the proposals, which would cost around £200,000 and be funded by the four South Yorkshire councils.
