School children in Jersey could benefit from free bus journeys.

That is if a proposition, put forward by Deputy Rob Ward, is accepted in the States.

The plans could come into effect as soon as September, and would then be opened up to everyone in the island by 2020.

It will be debated next month.

Free public transport would reduce the number of cars on the road.
