Changes to bus tickets & fares

Date added: 14th July 2017

From Sunday 23 July Stagecoach are making important changes to simplify tickets and fares.

They are going to restructure how fares are calculated and make some changes to the range of tickets available.

This will mean that some single and return fares will go up and some will come down.

Most dayrider and megarider tickets will increase in price.

Stagecoach are going to restructure how single and return fares are calculated. Single fares will be realigned across the region and the equivalent return fare will be set at 1.5 times the single.

This makes everything a lot simpler but will mean that some fares will go up and some will come down. For example, if you currently pay £1.35 for a single your new fare will become £1.60, but if you pay £1.30 for a single, your new fare will become £1.10.

From Monday 17 July you’ll be able to check the new fare for your journey using the online ticket finder. (You’ll need to select a travel date that is after the 23 July).

You may find that a dayrider ticket is the cheapest option. If your single or return fare exceeds the price of a dayrider ticket, the ticket finder will present a dayrider as the ‘best value’ option.
