Plea for half-price bus travel for students aged 16+

A campaign has been started, lobbying the Department of Infrastructure and Bus Vannin to introduce half-price fares for students aged 16 and over.

Archibald Elliott, who's behind the push, argues it's cost effective:

Mr Elliott has started a petition, to gather support for the campaign.
