I launched a nationwide advertising campaign at Stirling Bus Station on 10 September to publicise the introduction of free local off-peak concessionary bus travel for elderly and disabled people from 30 September 2002. Posters will appear in and on buses throughout Scotland advising concession card holders of the minimum benefits to which they will be entitled. We will also be placing adverts in local newspapers across the country later in the month. These initiatives will complement guidance and information provided by councils, at a local level, on individual concessionary travel schemes.
