Student discount bus travel scheme about to stop

STAFFORDSHIRE County Council’s student discount bus travel scheme will cease at the end of this month.
The axing of the Your Staffordshire Card scheme has been blamed on financial pressures facing the authority.
A spokesman said: “Staffordshire County Council like mamy other councils is facing challenges not of our making due to the increasing costs of funding adult social care and children’s care – at a time when national funding to councils continue to fall.”
Students are being advised to contact their bus operator to see what alternatives are available.
