Focus on Bus Users: Consultation Questions

RELBUS believes there a number of ingredients to Fair Fares:

  • Fare levels should be affordable fares to ensure that bus travel remains accessible to all sections of the community
  • Exact fares will only apply where there is a flat fare in place
  • All operators have promotional multiple ticket purchasing of season ticketing
  • Smart payments using contactless payment and mobile telephony, perhaps before boarding could make life much easier for passengers and encourage patronage
  • Through ticketing or joint ticketing whereby a ticket bought from one operator, is valid on any other serving the same route.

Q6. Do you agree that RELBUS should work towards this?
