Bus Fare Increase
Some bus fares increased in price yesterday – notably a new £5 rate is being introduced for the round island routes 91 and 92 starting and finishing in town.
The new fare’s aimed at visitors wanting to travel right around the coastline.
There are modest rises to the Orange pay-as-you-go Puffin Pass fare which rises from 50p to 60p and the monthly Blue Puffin Pass rises by £20 to £22. The standard £1 fare remains the same.
There are still plans for contactless technology to be used to streamline paying for the bus service in the future.
