Fares increase

21 December 2016

There will be changes to some tickets and fares from 2 January 2017.

The current 16-25 bus and rail ticket will be extended to include any young person under 26 years old, helping more people access even better value travel. There will also be some increases in line with inflation, however some bus fares will remain frozen.

Richard Armitage FCILT, Chair of the West Yorkshire Ticketing Company, the organisation behind the MCard, said:

"The MCard can be loaded with a selection of multi-operator tickets, giving customers the freedom to jump aboard any bus or train across the county. We pride ourselves on keeping any fare increase to a minimum and our tickets still offer great value for money wherever you’re heading in West Yorkshire. We’re continually  reviewing how our customers can access these tickets, and we’re investing in making this as easy as possible.”
