Concessionary Travel £1 Fife Rail Fare may be axed

Disabilities Fife

The news has been met with disappointment from Disabilities Fife.

Charles Litster, chairman, said: “It was a very handy means of people getting from A to B.

“People going from Inverkeithing to Dundee would be able to travel for a £1, get off at Cupar and get the bus into Dundee and this would stop that completely.

“It gave people a lot of freedom and they could get out and about on mini days out. This is a sad reflection on our times.”

Fife Conservative group leader Councillor Dave Dempsey said: “The rail concession saving was in the list of options for the budget decided on the 11th of this month.

“The SNP/Lab administration didn’t touch it so it’ll be interesting to see what line they take on Thursday.

“The coalition’s insistence on rigid, centrally controlled budgeting (in contrast to our decentralised, commissioning approach) means that, three weeks after budget day, they have to cut something to pay for something else.

“We need a short time to work through the proposal and decide whether the something else is worth it.”

1. You will need to scroll down to get to the survey as there is a lot of text prior to it.

2. You will find that the Fife Council and FCfE logos are difficult to see, but this is an official FCfE Survey

3. The text for some people in the note and some parts of the form is too small for some people to read.

4. If that is the case please phone the people above to seek help

TEXT TO VOICE FEATURE - VIDEO CLIP

The accessible voice link is hard to find on the survey. Three small dots and a complex process/procedure will give anyone a challenge. Especially, as it is not labelled and there are no instructions provided to anyone completing the form to say this facility exists. The trainer says that the system is a bit awkward to use. Again if you have any issues please contact the people above.
