A bus company that provides transport around Swindon and Wiltshire is increasing some of its ticket prices.

Stagecoach West blamed rising running and operational costs across the industry for its decision to raise certain fares from June 23.

The app prices for Evening Rider tickets and the West Gold seven-day adult ticket will go up, and paying for tickets bought on the bus will cost more.

Single and return tickets remain unchanged.

The Flexi5 ticket price has been frozen. One-day and seven-day tickets are cheaper when bought on the Stagecoach app.

Group day tickets will soon cover five people travelling together rather than four. 

From Sunday, June 23, 28-day MegaRider tickets will no longer be available to purchase, but regular travellers can sign up to the MegaRider Xtra ticket instead.

StudentRider academic year tickets and new term tickets go on sale from August 1.

Stagecoach West managing director Chris Hanson said: "Following an extensive review of running and operational costs we are delighted to be in the position to freeze the majority of our fares once again, with only a small number of increases.

“We work hard to keep costs as low as possible across our network, to ensure bus travel remains great value for money and the best, sustainable option to travel for our customers.”
