Just a few months after they increased the cost of Weekly tickets, Arriva have raised prices across the board!
The changes in fares will be introduced from 1st April.
Adult single fares will be increased by 10p to 30p in general with child fares becoming 2/3 of the adult fare throughout Wales.
Child day and weekly tickets will be priced at 2/3 of the adult equivalent.
Arriva states on their site:
“We understand that this will have a regrettable impact upon our customers, however at this time we have little option but to react to the substantial reduction in government financial support of bus services across Wales and the rising cost of fuel.”
With the possible strikes by Tanker drivers and the general economic climate, I think this is a bit of unfortunate timing.
