Revised Fares 31st March 2024

1 month ago Fri 8th Mar 2024

We have always tried to ensure that we offer fares that are affordable, great value for money and are constructed such that we can ensure we offer a level of flexibility for the journeys that you make. We have also made best use of technology to further support this with our range of exclusive app bundle single and day tickets.

At the end of 31st March the Welsh Government's Bus Transition Fund (BTF) ends. From this time all operators in Wales return to operating their network with the revenue generated by customers who use their services.  In light of this we have therefore had no other option than to review the ongoing cost pressures associated with operating our services including ensuring we build a level of robustness into our timetables at a greater level now than ever has been the case.

This will mean revised fares from 31st March 2024.  We have maintained our app exclusive bundle ticket prices as much as we can - you can still make a single journey ticket in Cardiff for £2.00 using this method - that's is still 20p less than todays on the bus cash fare!

NEW TICKET!

We recognise the importance of our fares and decisions that our customers make. We also know that the school-run is a time where lots of short journeys are made that adds pressure to the road network. Listening to customers, we are introducing a trial app exclusive 'School-Run' ticket which is £6 and available for journeys in the Cardiff, Llandough and Penarth areas on School Days between 07:00 and 19:00. The ticket must be held by an adult, who can be accompanied by up to three children (or none at all, ideal for getting back home or to the shops between the school runs).
