David Carr: Me and my bus pass - good, free public transport for all
CommonSpace columnist David Carr explores what public transport means to our lives - and how it could be made better
I HAVE a card in my wallet that gives me free bus travel all over Scotland. The result of legislation carried through parliament by the Scottish Socialist Party, it is available to people over 60 or with a disability.
I can’t use night buses - that’s past disableds’ bedtime - but at least it lets me take someone along with me, in case I wander off.
