Time restrictions on use of free bus passes across Cambridgeshire have been scrapped.
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority – that now controls transport policies – announced the move today.
“Free bus passes will now be eligible before 9.30am across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough,” said a spokesman.
“This is to help elderly and vulnerable people get to supermarkets that are prioritising them during morning hours.
“Please pass on this information to anyone you know in the region with a bus pass; all they will need to do is present it as usual.”
The spokesman said the change was supported by Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council.
Mayor James Palmer said: “This is hugely important: bus passes now eligible early enough to get elderly and vulnerable to supermarkets where they are being prioritised.
