Our main village bus operator has announced that it is revising prices from Sunday March 25th. However, it points out that many fares have been frozen for the past four years.
Nottingham City Transport says: “We appreciate nobody likes to pay more, but we are no longer able to absorb above inflationary increases in our operating costs and have to pass some of these costs on to our customers.”
The new fares will affect passengers using NCT’s Navy 3 and Green 10 Ruddington services. An Adult “Standard City Single” will soon cost £2.20 – or £2.00 if you pay through the NCTX Buses App or a Robin Hood PAYG card. An “All Day Ticket” will rise to £4.00 – or £3.80 for App and Robin Hood card users. Under 19 single fares rise by just 10p to £1.10 – or remain £1 if using the App – whilst an Under 19 All Day Ticket is frozen at £2.50. Students and dogs have escaped any rises!
There’s also good news for families planning a #RuddyGoodDayOut since Grouprider tickets which can be used after 9.30am on weekdays and all day at weekends will remain at £5.00 – and weekend, late night revellers using the N48 NightBus back to Ruddington will still pay £3.00.
NCT adds: “If you currently pay cash on the bus, switching to the NCTX Buses App, Easyrider and Robin Hood can minimise the increase in your fare.”
