Passengers getting good deal from weekly bus tickets

Passengers getting good deal from weekly bus tickets

Bus passengers are getting a good deal from their weekly bus tickets according to latest National Fares Survey from the TAS Partnership.

The Survey showed that the average weekly ticket was up from £16.74 in 2015 to £17.09, an increase of just 2%. 

Responding to the Survey's findings, Claire Walters, chief executive of Bus Users UK said: “Buses generally provide excellent value for money and it’s good to see prices for weekly tickets are providing good options for passengers.

"However, we need to find new ways of helping those who don’t have access to smart technology and possibly only work a day or two a week – their travel costs will take up a much larger proportion of their income, limiting the options for people already at a disadvantage.

"Bus operators have overcome major obstacles with creativity and imagination – I am confident they will find a way to meet this passenger need.”
