‘Stagecoach has three times been independently found to have the best value bus fares in Britain and we have taken action to hold our prices for as long as possible despite the fact that bus industry costs have been rising at a higher rate than inflation over several years. Even with these latest changes, bus travel remains significantly cheaper than commuting by car.

‘Our bus services continue to offer a greener, smarter and better value way to travel.’
