1. That a temporary change to the Concessionary Travel Scheme administered by Hampshire County Council be approved to change the automatic renewal of Older Person’s Concessionary Bus Passes from those used in the last 12 months to 24 months as part of the Council’s Covid-19 response measures.
2. To review the temporary change as part of preparing the scheme details for 2022/23 and in any event reinstate the 12 month renewal threshold for Older Person’s Concessionary Bus Passes when it is clear that bus operations and usage have normalised, travel restrictions and social distancing guidance have been relaxed at a national level and the travel patterns of pass holders have stabilised if this happens first.
