There have recently been changes announced in respect of the First Bus Bristol pricing structure. A large amount of single fares have been reduced. What has not been made clear in any of the media reports is the fare increases to monthly tickets and yearly passes for people who live in Zone 1. Regular travelers are being penalized by fare increases, despite loyal custom to First Bus over many years. The monthly fare for Zone 1 is increasing from £60 - £68 - an increase of 13.3%. The increase will be unaffordable for allot of people which will mean they will either resort to using their cars to commute to work, or they will have to pay in single fares every day, which will delay the bus services. First argue that the ticket can be used over a wider zone, but for those of us currently in zone 1 the being able to use it to travel further is of no benefit. Details of the changes can be read here:

They are also taking away free travel at the weekends for children of bus pass users saying it is a 'little used benefit'. Why take it away if it is 'little used'. Those of us who do use it, value it.
