The Abono Joven pass that gives discounted travel to young people in Madrid will be extended from May to those up to 23 years of age, city authorities have announced, to help young people in the current economic climate. Formerly only available to the age of 22, it is estimated that around 60,000 young people born in 1989 will benefit immediately from the changes. The Abono Joven pass gives average rebates on travel of between 30 and 50 per cent.
