Community Transport Fare Increases from 1 May 2017
From 1 May 2017 CT operators will be increasing the fares for their ShopperBus and Dial-a-Ride services as follows:
|Community Transport Fare increase as of May 1st 2017|
|0 – 2 miles||£2.00||£2.20||£0.20|
|2.1 – 4 miles||£2.50||£2.80||£0.30|

Why are these changes taking place?
This rise in fares is at the instigation of CT operators in response to rising operational costs and is the first price increase since 2014.
