Bus fares in Cardiff were raised for the first time in over two years on October 23, in response to the rising fuel prices.

Cardiff Bus announced earlier this month that some of the bus fares would rise. Four of the service’s fares have gone up: the ’day to go’ and single ticke prices for children and adults.

While Cardiff Bus regrets that rising fuel costs have led to increased bus fares, Managing Director David Brown remains very proud of the fact that not all ticket fares have been raised. Brown says in a press statement: “We are pleased to have managed to keep our season tickets for our regular customers at the same price, which we believe offer excellent value for money.”
