More Doncaster bus fares are set to increase from tomorrow, as operator First South Yorkshire brings in their annual price rise.

The cost of a weekly ticket will rise from £14 to £15.

A monthly pass will set bus-users back an extra eight per cent, with the price rising from £50 to £54.

But not every fare is set to rise tomorrow, with the cost of a day ticket frozen at £4.

First South Yorkshire say that some of their fares, such as the day ticket, have returned to 2007 levels.

Allan Riggall, Head of Commercial, said: “As with any business, when reviewing prices, we factor in the costs that we face as a business and although some customers will have to pay more than they did last week, we are proud we have managed to limit increases over a sustained period of 10 years.

If you compare our new weekly ticket price of £15 with other items that were available in 2005, such as a Freddo chocolate bar or other everyday items, bus fares really are bucking the trend when it comes to inflation.”
