West Yorkshire Combined Authority has just announced that, from the start of next term in September 2018, there will be a fares increase on school bus services contracted by the Combined Authority, including Mybus (yellow bus) services. On the majority of services, a flat single fare will be charged (regardless of distance travelled). From 3 September, the changes will be as follows:
|Service type||Current fare||Fare from 3/9/18|
|Secondary School Mybus||£1.10||£1.25|
|Secondary School Non-Mybus||£1.20||£1.25|
On a small number of secondary school services, graduated fares are still charged (fare varies by distance travelled) and they currently vary between 70p and £1.50 per trip. With the exception of the £1.50 fare, these will increase by between 5p and 10p depending on the level of the current fare. The £1.50 fare will not increase.
Money-saving Myday (£2.60) and Under 19 weekly (£10) and monthly (£37) MCard tickets, which can be used on all West Yorkshire bus services, are also available on these services.
