The Mayor responds to bus operators increasing their fares

The Mayor has expressed her disappointment that some bus operators in West Yorkshire have chosen to increase fares.

5 September 2022

The Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin, said:

“My Mayor’s Fares will bring travel costs down and help people make huge savings at a time when they need it most.

"It’s disappointing that some operators are using this as an opportunity to sneak up fares on previously cheaper routes.

“Let me be clear - these price increases by operators are not to pay for the new £2 fare cap. We are reimbursing them for this. I’ll be taking this issue up with operators as a matter of urgency.

“My Mayor's Fares will make bus travel cheaper and simpler across West Yorkshire, and I want all passengers to feel the benefit."
