BIG changes to the borough's concessionary scheme will mean free bus travel after 9.30am for disabled people and anyone over 60.
The new county-wide scheme means that people with a concessionary travel scheme bus pass can travel completely free: nMonday-Friday after 9.30am. Journeys started before 9.30am on a weekday will be charged at half fare
Anytime on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays.
Previously in Ellesmere Port and Neston, pass holders were entitled to a 75% discount on fares that started and ended in the borough at all times of the day.
The other major advantage of the new scheme is that pass holders will be able to travel into adjoining counties, providing their journey starts or finishes in Cheshire.
So you could travel free from Ellesmere Port to Liverpool.
Sandy Fife, the borough council's head of revenue units, said: 'This is a major change to the scheme that we have been running in the borough for many years but hopefully those eligible for a pass will make full use of the free travel on offer.
'People who already have a bus pass can just continue using the one they've got but anyone who is eligible for a pass but doesn't yet have one should contact us as soon as possible.' nFor further information or to request a bus pass, phone 01244 602666 between 8am and 8pm seven days a week.
