Coronavirus: East Midlands bus company trentbarton is accepting concessionary bus passes before 9.30am to help the elderly and those vulnerable to coronavirus




A bus operator is doing its bit for the elderly during the coronavirus pandemic.

Trentbarton is offering to help older and vulnerable people to get to the shops and banks during early morning openings by accepting concessionary bus passes before 9.30am during weekdays.

The bus passes are normally only valid after 9.30am, but as supermarkets and banks are operating special openings for older customers and thosee who are vulnerable to the coronavirus, trentbarton has lifted the rule to help their customers get out when needed.

Jeff Counsell (pictured), managing director at trentbarton, said: “We provide a vital lifeline for the elderly and vulnerable customers without access to a car.

“When we heard the supermarkets and other organisations were introducing a special hour or so each day for customers who are trying to socially distance themselves from the general population, we recognised we could also help.”

The concessionary passes can be used across all of trentbarton’s services, excluding red arrow. The temporary arrangement will be kept under review as the spread of the pandemic evolves.
