Great news – buses are getting cheaper! From Sunday 4 September, you can travel for less thanks to the introduction of “Mayor’s Fares” across the region, as the Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin, helps ease the cost of living crisis.
From 4 September, single journeys will be capped at £2 and the MCard DaySaver will be £4.50, reduced from £5.50 – an almost 20% saving on the old price.
