To ask the Scottish Government what communications it has had with stakeholders to discuss a possible review or alteration to its concessionary travel scheme for people aged over 60 or who are in a disability scheme.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 26 January 2017

The Scottish Government has on-going dialogue with stakeholders on concessionary travel.

In the coming weeks we will be engaging with stakeholders to get their views on ways in which the Scottish Government can safeguard the longer term sustainability of the Concessionary Travel Scheme. This will inform a formal written public consultation later in the year.
