Why should I use the bus? It’s too slow and expensive

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.
