Elderly and disabled 'could lose bus services'

Elderly and disabled passengers could lose vital bus services because of cuts in government funding, councils in England warn. The Local Government Association (LGA) says support for the concessionary fares scheme has been reduced by over a third since 2010. Under the scheme, councils have to provide free off-peak travel for those aged over 62 or disabled.
