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.

Combined Authority will publish this information on their website, wymetro.com/schools, shortly and will be informing parents about the increase in the letter that will accompany their child’s pass in August.  Questions should be addressed to: Debra Bagley, Contracts and Operations Team Leader, West Yorkshire Combined Authority, Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (the LEP), Wellington House, 40-50 Wellington Street, Leeds.  LS1 2DE Tel: 251 7427 This email address is being protected from spambots.
