The value of vouchers for concessionary bus travel has been increased by £50.
Suffolk County Council’s cabinet opted to raise the amount available in travel vouchers from £50 to £100 this week.
However, they did not extend time restrictions for those with bus passes.
They were given a number of options - two of which could have seen them go beyond the statutory minimum for free bus travel.
Extending the vouchers was the cheapest option and will cost £60,000 to £90,000.
The vouchers are usually used by the disabled and those in remote locations.
