That’s what the proposals aim to solve. Around £50m will go into public transport each year, which is a big increase in funding from the current situation, and provide the following benefits, which should make it more attractive for many people.
- Cheaper fares (£1 flat single for the city/£2 flat single for the wider region), daily price caps, weekly and monthly tickets
- High frequency services
- A huge increase in rural services
- Longer operating hours, from 5am to 1am Monday to Saturday, and 5am to midnight on Sundays
- Simpler ticketing, with a tap-on, tap-off system.
