PENSIONER power has won the day in Ipswich.

The borough council has reversed its decision to increase the cost of its travel cards for senior citizens.

The council will now refund money to pensioners as travel vouchers for bus services.

Transport Spokeswoman Penny Breakwell said: "We listened to our travel card customers and I'm pleased to say we were able to reconsider the proposed increase. We are always keen to encourage the use of public transport and wherever possible make it the preferred option."

Those who have already purchased the travel cards will be sent a refund in the form of a £2 voucher. The voucher will be valid for 5 journeys (usual fare 40 pence) on local buses.

Travel card holders do not need to claim their vouchers in person as they will be posted to all card holders in early April.
