The way it was!
NZ'S FIRST PENSIONER CARD WAS LIKE GOLD
In 1961 Birkenhead Transport Ltd became the first bus company in New Zealand to introduce pensioner fares. The first day of issue saw the company office inundated with residents wanting to uplift their new pass.
The idea had come from a scheme that Charles Inwards had seen during a visit to Scotland and as the company was making a good profit due to the increased patronage, they decided to give something back to the community.
