Stagecoach announce fare increases
11:30am Sunday 1st April 2012 in News
Fares in Greater Manchester will rise by an average of six per cent on Stagecoach buses.
The increases will come into force from next Sunday due to rising costs and a 74 per cent hike in fuel tax for buses.
However Stagecoach has protected regular bus users by keeping the increase on its weekly megarider ticket to 4 per cent.
Christopher Bowles, Managing Director of Stagecoach Manchester, said: “We have had to make some very tough decisions, but we have worked hard to keep fares down for those who rely on the bus the most.”
