Parity, a national organisation which fights for the same rights for women and women, wants the PTA to abolish the police which allows women a free buss pass at 60 but leaves men waiting until they are 65.
Parity said the authority could not be blamed for the inequality because its 'hands are tied' by the government. But it want the PTA to lodge its concern with Westminster over the 'discrimination' and press for an equal system.
Jim Saunders, of the PTA's executive committee, said the organisation was 'governed by the law of the land. The cannot do otherwise. The problem is it would create a precedent over all sorts of things, for example, television licences,' he said.
