TRANSPORT chiefs have been warned the suspension of free travel for elderly passengers in rush hour must not become a permanent measure.
Thousands of Freedom Pass passengers were told this week that the dispensation was being scrapped as the government announced a bailout deal for Transport for London (TfL).
