WSCC concessionary travel change

Please note that from the end of October, WSCC will no longer include a free Senior Railcard as an alternative to the Older Person’s Bus Pass. People will have until 31 October 2020 to apply for the free Senior Railcard option instead of the bus pass. There are no changes to the free Disabled Person’s Railcard alternative to the Disabled Person’s Bus Pass, which will remain as an option for anyone with a qualifying disability. For more details please see here.

Travel Corridors

For anyone contemplating foreign travel, the Government regularly publish information on whether you will need to self-isolate on return to England depending on which country you have visited. As no doubt you will have seen in news reports at the weekend, this is a very fluid situation – once a country reaches an infection rate of 20 cases per 100,000 people it will be removed from the exemption risk and there are currently fears that this could affect Greece and Ireland where cases are rising.
