Sixty people are expected to take part in a protest at a bus stop in the Hanley area of the city before boarding buses headed for the Civic Centre.
The protesters will then meet council members to give them a statement highlighting why they think free travel early in the morning and late at night should be reintroduced.
It's thought the move could save the council around £100,000 a year.
But the council have defended the decision saying its subsidy for public transport is now in line with the national concessionary pass which also starts at 9:30am.
The protest group will hand in a statement to council representatives, which has been signed by 21 community groups from across North Staffordshire.
