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.


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."
