Campaigning pensioners - the so-called Freedom Riders- have begun to gather outside Barnsley Town Hall to protest about cuts their concessionary travel.
They are planning to lobby members of nine councils from South Yorkshire, Bassetlaw and north Derbyshire who are meeting this afternoon (Monday may 19, 2014) to vote on proposals to make the elderly in South Yorkshire pay half towards the cost of their rail fare.
The protestors have already won concessions- transport bosses have agreed the disabled can travel free. But the pensioners say their protests will only stop when they get completely free travel once again
