Government’s transport pass policy will benefit 85% of Portuguese

News that the cost of bus and train passes is being slashed is now presented as national government policy and should provide significant financial relief for 85% of the country.

This at least is the intention of PS Socialists who vow that by April 1 “most councils” will be reducing the cost of monthly travel passes by over 40%. It’s simultaneous move to help the environment and household incomes.
