IT’S ridiculous to increase bus fares by 75% over three years for under-16s. Adults wouldn’t stand for it.
Perhaps its time for kids to press the authorities to start charging the legions of ‘bus pass’ holders who ride for free. We’re all in it together, but again the young are unfairly bearing the costs of the older generation’s mismanagement of the economy. They should hand back their passes in shame and pay their way like the rest of us.
