NorthLink boss confirms cut to concessionary rate
Serco NorthLink has confirmed this week that fare discounts for pensioners, disabled people and students have been reduced from 25 to 10 per cent.
At a meeting of the external transport forum in Lerwick today, NorthLink managing director Stuart Garrett said that the 10 per cent discount had been specified in their contract.
He also reminded the meeting that this concession applied over and above the island discount, and that those entitled to it already received two free return trips each year.
More details will follow in Friday’s paper.
