First York announces bus fare changes
First York has today announced that it will be introducing new fares on 14th July across its bus network.
First York is making changes to single, day and weekly fares from 14th July but is continuing to offer customers the best value for money when they purchase tickets in advance of boarding the bus via its mobile ticketing App.
The bus operator is making it easier to know how much a single bus trip costs by simplifying the fares. A single trip will cost just £2 if purchased via the mTickets App, or there will be three fares available (£1.20, £2, £2.50) if purchasing on-bus. Updated fares on the mTickets App continue to offer the best value with Day tickets costing £4.05 (£4.50 from the driver) and Weekly mTicket fares £15.75 or £17.50 if purchased from the Driver.
First York wants to help its customers save time and speed up bus journeys, which is why it offers its best value price for tickets purchased via the mTickets App. Recent research by First Bus has found that using mTickets is twice as fast compared to paying with cash or via contactless.
Marc Bichtemann, Managing Director at First York, said: “We have worked hard to keep any increases to a minimum and continue to offer customers the best value fares via our mTickets App. Our focus on encouraging more customers to purchase mTickets will continue, as this helps improve journey times and punctuality, which are all factors that we know are vital to customers.”
