BUS fare changes have come into effect this week with Stagecoach introducing some increases, some decreases and some fares staying the same.

The company is encouraging customers to buy tickets online or the Stagecoach Bus App before travelling with extra discounts in a bid to lower the amount of time spent at bus stops and speeding up journey times.

John Young, commercial director at Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “Our customers have been telling us for a while that the range of tickets we have on our buses is too complicated, so from January 2 we are making things much simpler and easier to understand.

“Simplifying our bus and tram tickets, the recent investment in the improved Stagecoach Bus App (which allows you to track your bus live on a map) and contactless payment on all our buses continues to help us make bus travel more attractive to non-users and encourage more people to try the bus for some of their travel needs.”
