Bus Services after the Spending Review - Transport Committee Contents

Written evidence from L Friend (BUS 73)

We started our campaign for cheaper bus fares in June 2010 and ran it until August. We managed to get over 1,500 names within the Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset areas. We have also collected written evidence of expensive bus tickets. Where dayrider tickets are available in Bristol and Bath they are generally good value for money and better than single or return tickets depending on your journey. We have enclosed a separate sheet of fares that us and other people have paid and we feel it is these fares that are the most unfair.
