FOI Request Concessionary Travel for Carers

Request 101001573486

I am looking for details of the scheme you offer to carers which provides them with discounted or concessionary travel on local public transport (i.e. bus, ferry, local rail, tram, subway etc). Please include details of:
• Discount/ concession available to carers in your authority area
• the qualifying criteria, ie, if it is reliant on Carer's Allowance entitlement, or a bespoke assessment
• mode(s) of transport discount or concession is available on
• the number of carers who access/receive the discount or concession
• the financial support the authority provides to run the discount or concession system
• if known, the number of journeys taken under the discount or concessionary scheme
• link to where this relevant information is held on your website

Moray Council does not operate any travel concession schemes for carers therefore this information is exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- Information Not Held. . We do have a 'plus 1' scheme for Disabled people requiring a carer to travel with them (carer travels for free) however this is their entitlement, not that of the carer. Details can be found on the Council web site at http://www.moray.gov.uk/moray_standard/page_40170.html
