Up to 20 Freedom Riders lobbied the South Yorkshire Transport Committee in Barnsley on Monday, demanding no further cuts to concessionary travel in 2016/17.
South Yorkshire councils removed free train travel from older and disabled people last year. Councils returned free travel to disabled people after Freedom Ride protests.
And Freedom Riders are celebrating another victory in their campaign. Stagecoach has extended a scheme whereby older people can have free bus travel to get to early hospital appointments.
This scheme was operating in Barnsley but now applies across South Yorkshire.
Freedom Rider Tony Nuttall said, “This shows that persistent and active campaigning can improve travel facilities.”
