Closed petition Provide 24 hour concessionary travel for disabled people

The current concessionary travel scheme restricts travel to off-peak hours, limiting equal work opportunities for disabled people.

Concessionary passes are valid after 9:30 on weekdays and after standard 9-5 working hours begin. This questions the UK's commitment to equality in the workplace.
