Alliance Councillor Barney Fitzpatrick has said he fully supports free public transport for all pensioners.

He was commenting last week, after the Regional Development Minister Danny kennedy hinted that the free travel for over 60’s in Northern Ireland may be under threat.

Councillor Fitzpatrick said: “I remain fully supportive of free public transport for all people over the age of 60. 
“I would be very disappointed if funding for this scheme was to end. As the Minister has previously given a commitment in the Assembly that free public transport for older people would continue, I hope he will honour that pledge.”
