Keep the discounts on the busses for our mature students!

It’s come to my attention that the Isle of Man bus company have abolished student discounts for IOM college mature students
The price of this is already causing people to miss classes and even drop out because they can’t afford to get to college, especially people from the north of the island
discounts have been abolished for students over 19 causing a lot of independently living people to have to pay around £30 a week to get to college (based on return prices just from Ramsey), these people are full time students so are not able to work full time so are relying on either part time work or are unemployed
All full time students should get the same discounts and same opportunities, mature people are put off from continuing their education based on the price of just the transport to get there
We’re hoping that this will get the bus company’s attention!
