Stagecoach South Wales fare changes

Written by on 19th March 2024

From Monday 1st April 2024, Stagecoach will introduce new fares across South Wales.

Almost all the money received in fares goes towards paying for the day-to-day running of services as well as investing in improvements such as new vehicles and funding new routes and services. It also covers additional costs including paying government taxes which support public services and goes back into the local communities it serves. The volume of customers returning to buses in Wales is significantly below pre-pandemic levels compared to services in England and Scotland.

The operator has also introduced flexible tickets, giving customers the freedom to travel when it suits them whilst making a 20% saving as opposed to purchasing individual day tickets.

With a smaller increase in price for multi-journey day tickets, customers can still benefit from the unlimited travel that these tickets provide. In addition to the fare changes, South Wales has made some changes to zones due to low sales and to simplify the product range for customers.

Martin Gibbon, Managing Director for Stagecoach South Wales said:

“Stagecoach has consistently delivered some of the lowest ticket prices in the country and we are committed to continuing to keep fares as low as possible for our customers.

“As well as paying for the day to day running of the country’s vital bus networks, ticket costs help us to continue investing in improvements for our customers and pay for our employees who continually work hard to keep communities connected. Attracting new employees to the business is an important part of service delivery and building our network.

“We are doing everything possible to absorb these cost increases and to help protect our valued customers at the same time as ensuring our own people receive fair pay increases to help them manage the significant cost-of-living challenges.

“That means that changing our fares to reflect the current climate is a necessity to ensure we can keep our services running and provide a sustainable network for our customers”.
