Reading bus fare rises on the way

THE standard single fare on Reading Buses is to rise by 10p next month to £1.80.

The council-owned company says the increase - the first for three years - is inevitable because it needs to meet higher fuel and raw material costs but claims that the blow will be softened by its range of concessionary fares.

The "general fares revision" on all Reading Buses services comes into effect from Sunday, October 9, when the day ticket for passengers making more than two journeys a day will also rise, from £3.80 to £4.

Child fares increase by 10p to £1.30 for a standard journey and Jet Black and Vitality services will also go up.

The company points out that since the last increase it has introduced a £1 flat fare for many short distance trips, and the £1 To Town fares will all stay the same. Meanwhile the standard return ticket is being reintroduced, but at £3.40, which means anyone making a two-way trip pays at pre-October 9 prices.

Weekly tickets also rise by £1 to £14, but Reading Transport communications manager Nikki Honer promised the cost of longer-term tickets, such as 30 and 90 days, will provide savings for anyone buying in advance.

The 30-day ticket goes up from £52 to £55, but is now cheaper than buying four separate weekly tickets, while the 90-day ticket actuially comes down in price from £150 to £154. There is also a new, 365-day annual ticket valid across the entire simplyReading [CORRECT] urban network which will cost £500.

Alongside the £1 journeys, bargain fares including the number 9 and the Caversham+Hospital Day Ticket at £3 on pink routes 22, 23 and 24 are also being frozen.

Mrs Honer said: "For three years we managed to maintain the £1.70 standard fare and indeed over the last two years we have introduced a growing range of £1 fares on shorter stretches of routes within the network, including the Orange routes within Woodley. All the £1 fares introduced this summer will be continuing.

"But after three years a price increase has become inevitable and we have worked very hard to keep this to a minimum, and the re-launch of the day return fare will mean no increase at all for many people."
