Sheffield Price Promise
We promise to offer Sheffield customers the best value fares
Following feedback from customers, Price Promise was introduced in October 2016, which means that adult and student customers travelling in Sheffield, will not be able to travel cheaper on any other operator for the same journey.
We believe that this will help remove any confusion caused by different fares being charged for the same journey and help encourage more car users to switch to bus travel.
Speaking about the Price Promise, Allan Riggall, our Head of Commercial, said: “This is the first time we have ever trialled something like this anywhere in South Yorkshire. We want our customers to know that when they travel with us, that not only will they receive a high quality service, but they will also receive the best value journey.
"Our Price Promise is really simple. We’ve reviewed hundreds of our Sheffield bus fares as part of our promise, and we reduced dozens of prices for customers, so that they receive the best fares available."
“In the event that customers find a cheaper fare available for the same journey, we will provide a refund, and bring our fare down."
“We believe that the Price Promise builds on the recent success of the Sheffield Bus Partnership and the great value, multi-operator, Travel Master tickets.”
We will monitor market prices every Friday to ensure we offer value.
Refunds will be issued in form of a travel voucher.
