Traffic and Highway Services has proposed several changes in its review of public bus services, including a price hike and the discontinuation of cash payments.
It has been proposed that contactless fares increase by 25p and the monthly pass increases by £3.
“Throughout the pandemic, cash fares have not been accepted due to the increased risk posed through the transfer of physical cash from passengers to drivers and visa versa,” said THS.
“The service has transitioned to completely ‘contactless’ with no loss of functionality and therefore it is proposed this method is maintained going forward.”
A public consultation on the proposed changes is now open until 21 January and anyone who wants to comment is being asked to either write to email@example.com or the following address:
The Director of Traffic & Highway Services,
Bulwer Avenue Office,
