To provide travel passes on Transport for London (the underground) for the elderly to combat loneliness and social isolation

We want Essex County Council to provide travel passes on the underground for the elderly living in Essex at a nominal yearly fee of £30 to anyone who so wishes.


The current bus passes do not include free travel on the underground. It is not easy to travel any distance on buses, as one may have to change a number of times. Not only is it time-consuming but very gruelling waiting for buses especially during the winter-time, bad weather and at night time; also the cost implication. Because of these hassles and financial implications many elderly people decide to stay indoors and become isolated, which may affect their health and wellbeing.
