Fares Revision 2nd January 2020
Warrington’s bus fares have been frozen/reduced since 2015, during which time, many transport operators have increased prices. Rail fares increase again this January, for example.
Inflation since 2015 has been 12%, meaning that the bus company has absorbed these increasing costs to labour, parts and services. It has been able to do this by improving efficiency and from a small growth in customer numbers.
Whilst we continue to seek efficiencies and improve route profitability, it is important that we respond to the changing circumstances. As such, we will be introducing a change in fares from 2nd January.
Regular customers, who buy day, week, month or annual tickets will not be affected. Their fares will remain frozen at the 2015 price.
Single fares will increase by 10p, which is the smallest increment that can be done, in order to prevent unnecessary delays at bus stops. Return ticket prices will increase in proportion. Children under 16 continue to pay half fare and those with a concessionary pass continue to travel free of charge.
There are also some revisions to selected other fares, please visit our website warringtonsownbuses.co.uk or ask a member of our team for further information.
