New York bus pass just ticket for passengers
8:31am Monday 3rd September 2012 in News
A NEW ticket which can be used on any bus in York for a week has been launched.
The All York Week tickets are being introduced by City of York Council in collaboration with bus operators, one of three new types of ticket available from drivers aboard any bus in the city.
The ticket costs £20, including a wallet to keep it in, and allows passengers to travel anywhere in York on all services for seven consecutive days, removing the need to buy multiple tickets from different firms.
Coun Dave Merrett said it was part of wider efforts to cut congestion in the city by encouraging more residents to use public transport, as they will not have to wait for a particular service to arrive on routes served by different bus operators.
All York Day tickets, costing £4.50 for adults, and £10 All York Family tickets, which can be used by two adults and up to three children on a single day, have already been introduced.
