We the undersigned petition FIrst West Yorkshire to reverse their increase in fares on Leeds buses.
The increase of £1 buses up to £1.10 and £2 buses up to £2.10, may not seem like a lot for a single trip but at a time when the cost of living is increasing and incomes are falling, this is the wrong time for fare rises.
We also fear that breaking the barrier from a one or two pound coin, will lead to further and faster increases once people have accepted that a journey is a 'pound and a bit' and could lead to fewer people using the buses if they don't carry the correct change.
We further note that First have cut fares in Manchester and Sheffield and the Government have given £100million to Transport for London, just to keep their fares down.
