Stagecoach South West today announced that it has been forced to increase some of its fares from 2nd May 2011 as a result of rising costs for fuel, in addition to higher costs for pay and energy bills.
However, increases have been limited to certain one and seven day tickets plus single and return fares.
The company has been able to reduce the cost of the Exeter Dayrider ticket and freeze the cost of the Torbay Megarider 7 day ticket. In addition, Stagecoach South West is freezing the prices of all 4, 13 and 52 week tickets for the third year in a row.
The company also announced that it is introducing two new value-for-money ticket types across all their South West bus services: a child off peak 'add on' ticket costing £1.00 and a 'NiteRider' ticket costing £2.00.
The child off peak 'add on' ticket will be available to purchase by an accompanying fare paying adult all day at weekends and at any time during school holidays.
The permanent introduction of the child ‘add on’ follows on from a successful trial during the Spring half term period.
