As I am approaching the age to get it, as well as her indoors already having it, it does seem unfair to change the age. But, would I use it, probably not. I was told that the govt pays translink so much for each pass whether its used or not and the money in my eyes could be wasted else where

I have had mine for a while now and do use it a lot when travelling the UK as we tend to use a lot of Haven holiday sites off season (bus comes into most sites) so park up for a few days and travel the local area on the bus . Scotland we cant use it, Wales you get a £2 saving on a dayrider , not sure about Ireland as most of the places i have stopped have been walkable from where i've parked. Only used public transport twice , In the south used the train from Howth to Dublin and in the North the Belfast tour bus.
