Dear Northumberland County Council,

I am making a Freedom Of Information Act request to find out the following information regarding how many ENCTS bus passes are in use and then further broken down by type.

My questions are as follows below:

1. How many current valid ENCTS bus passes issued by your council are currently in circulation?

2. Of these how many are the ordinary OAP version (without any companion)?

3. Of these how many are the OAP plus Companion version (if you still issue these as i know many councils have stopped)?

4. Of these how many are the ordinary Disabled version (without any companion)?

5. Of these how many are the Disabled plus Companion version (if you still issue these as i know many councils have stopped)?

You may remember that i made this same exact request to you around three years ago and you provided me with this information so i am just asking for this information again in order to get the current up to date statistics as they would likely have now changed from the past three years or so.

Thank you for your help with this and i look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

John Smith

Northumberland County Council
