They came as part of the South Yorkshire Freedom Riders campaign and they headed straight for Northern Rail HQ. Over a dozen York people welcomed them and joined their march into town for a brief rally. The Freedom Riders are demanding the return of free local travel for pensioners and the disabled. Northern Rail refused to meet with them, despite their compromise proposal.
