Fares Review 21st October 2012
Fares on Arriva services in Herts, Beds and Bucks excluding Milton Keynes, will rise on Sunday 21st October following increased operational costs and a huge Government rise on fuel tax for buses.
With a 20% cut in the Bus Service Operators Grant combined with a planned 3p fuel duty rise, operating costs for bus services across the region will go up and we have had to review our fares as a result of these changes.
Single fares will increase along the following guidelines
£1.00 – £2.70 increase by 10p or 20p
£2.80 – £4.50 increase by 10p-30p
£4.60 – increase by 20p-40p
Return fares will increase too.
There is no increase to our day, week and 4 weekly savers which still represent excellent value and can save you money if you travel regularly with us. The 10% discount for purchasing 4 weekly tickets on line or via your mobile phone also remains.
