We're making some changes to tickets in Harrogate

19-04-2017

From Sunday 30 April, we're making some changes to our fares in Harrogate. 

Why are changes necessary?

Because over time, the costs to run buses have increased. We've shouldered these growing costs for as long as possible, but now we need to make some changes in order to make sure we can keep bringing you amazing buses.

Tickets on the 1

Most single fares along Knaresborough Road will increase by 10p, with a small number of fares increasing by 20p.

Return fares will increase by a maximum of 20p, with most returns increasing in price by only 10p.  

There will also be some changes to our weekly tickets on the 1, as follows:

  New price with BOB card
Star7
Harrogate - Starbeck and Starbeck - Knaresborough
£9 £3.80
Knaresborough7
Harrogate - Knaresborough
£12.50 £4.80

Some monthly tickets will also change in price. The Star monthly ticket will increase slightly to £33.50, and the Knaresborough monthly to £44.

Very few people bought the Knaresborough monthly ticket for young people, so this ticket will be withdrawn in order to make our range of tickets simpler. 

Whilst raising prices is never an easy decision, we still think that our tickets on the 1 are incredible value.

We're the only bus company to offer you free WiFi, USB power, audio announcements on board, and our innovative 'countdown to departure' screens to let you know exactly when your bus is ready to leave. 

Tickets between Harrogate and Wetherby

Some single tickets between Harrogate and Wetherby will increase by no more than 10p, and some return tickets on the 770 & 771 will increase by around 20p. 

Our Wetherby7 tickets will increase to £15.60 (£10.40 with a BOB card). Don't forget, we're still the only buses to run 7 days a week, so you can really make the most out of your weekly ticket.

We'll also be making a range of exciting improvements to your buses on the 770 & 771 later this year - watch this space!
