Bus fares for people with disabilities who travel during peak times are to double in Lancashire.
The county council has approved plans for fares for holders of NoWcards to pay £1 before 09:30 on weekdays - up from the previous fare of 50p.
The national concessionary travel scheme allows holders of a disabled persons' pass to travel for free between 09:30 and 23:00 Monday to Friday and all day at weekends and on bank holidays.
A public consultation on the proposal showed that 45% of cardholders had regularly travelled before 09:30 in the last 12 months.
The decision was made at the same meeting in which councillors vote to give themselves new iPhones.
John Fillis, deputy leader of the Labour opposition, said the saving from the NoWcard changes of £43,000 is "not much difference" to the potential £38,000 cost of the councillors' new phones.
Geoff Driver, leader of the Conservative-run council, said: "You clearly don’t understand the difference between one-off costs, for which there is provision in the budget, and on-going costs for which there isn’t.
"If we don’t make savings in areas like this, we will inevitably end up not being to provide services for the most vulnerable people," he added.
