Cardiff Bus increased their fareson Sunday 23 October 2011. ‘Day to go’ tickets are priced at £3.20 and single tickets at £1.60, representing an increase of £ .20 and £ .10 respectively. Child fares have also been raised.

Weekly and monthly bus tickets are not affected by the recent price increases, leaving daily commuters to feel the impact of the fare hike.

VictoriaRees-Price, Cardiff Bus Marketing Manager, said, “It was really important to us to keep the fare increases to a minimum”.

Cardiff Bus states that the changes have been made due to rises in fuel prices and other costs.

“We have done all we can to maintain the fares for as long as possible,” Rees-Price said.
