Reduced bus fares to run until the end of the year



Reduced bus fares to run until the end of the year

New reduced bus fares, which were first introduced in September 2023, have been extended and updated in time for the February half term holiday.

Each subsidy will run until December 2024, to help families make the switch to buses in an affordable way, and journeys need to start and finish within the City of York boundary.

The revised fares are made up of:

  • A £1 single fare for unaccompanied 5-16 year olds, which was introduced in September, has been extended to include 16-18 year olds (up to day before their 19th birthday)
  • Up to three passengers under the age of 16 accompanied by an adult (whether fare paying or not – eg grandparents using concessionary pass) are free
  • The All York Young Person’s Day ticket has been extended to include 17-18 year olds, and is £2.50, and now valid at all times of day
  • A new All York Young Person’s Weekly ticket, applicable to 5-18 year olds and priced at £12

How to buy: Look for the tickets on your bus app or ask the driver when you get on your bus.
