Concessionary fares for young people are already available in the vast majority of authorities in England outside of London and such concessionary fares for young people are a matter for local authorities and bus operators to determine in their local areas. Therefore at this point the Department has no plans to introduce a statutory national bus travel concession for young people in England.
