Good on them It gets folks out and about, it helps keep them active and interested in things.

Himself gets the Scottish free bus pass and that's well worth having too.
I get up some mornings to find a post it stuck to the kitchen door saying sommat like, "Gone to Fort William", and know I'll not see him till late pm

I'm glad they're doing this again this winter. I took advantage quite a lot last year and had some great days out for free. All you need is your bus pass!

In NZ we have a 'Gold Card' that you get at 65 or both get when 1 turns 65 which gives us rail,bus,ferry and other trips free all over the country off peak times.
