First Bus fare changes across York from Monday 3 July

  • FirstDay ticket stays at £4.80
  • Group and Bundle ticket prices remain unchanged

First Bus has announced changes to adult fares across York from Monday 3 July.

These are the first new prices to be introduced since last October during which time inflation has continued to remain high.

Adult Single fares will remain capped at £2 as part of the continuing national fare cap by the Government.

The FirstDay ticket will stay the same at £4.80 and the current prices of all Bundle and Group tickets will remain unchanged.

The Single fare will rise by 20p for adults who continue to use or switch to its Tap on Tap off (TOTO) card readers. Using this method helps to improve efficiency and keep costs down.

Kayleigh Ingham, Commercial Director of First Bus for North and West Yorkshire, said:

“By freezing the price of our tickets for multiple journeys we have continued to ensure that the average cost per trip remains low.

“Our business is not immune from the impact of inflation and rising business costs. We have looked carefully at how we can limit price increases for customers and balance this with the challenge of maintaining a sustainable network as we build back passenger numbers.”

She added: “These fare changes reflect the customer travel and buying habits we’re now seeing since the pandemic.

“At a time when everyone is looking at how to manage rising living costs and how much they use their own transport with continued high fuel prices, the bus is an affordable and sustainable way to travel.”

Posters will begin appearing on buses from today (28 June) and further details about the fare changes can be found by visiting the First Bus website Fare changes from 3rd July | First Bus
