Scottish Labour is backing calls for free public transport for critical workers including NHS staff.

The call comes following the announcement from the Scottish Government of a support package for bus firms.

Scottish Labour's Transport Spokesperson, Colin Smyth, said:

“The financial support for bus firms will help keep a lot of routes going at this time and those workers continuing to keep out transport system going deserve our thanks.

"Public transport will be vital to get many critical workers to their place of work, such as our NHS staff.

"The Scottish Government should work with bus firms to support those workers by extending free bus travel to those staff during this crisis.

"This can easily be implemented as NHS staff will have ID passes and it would take an additional cost off workers at this time.
