Lancaster bus fares have been frozen by Stagecoach.

The fare freeze will apply to all single, return, dayrider and megarider tickets sold on buses, online and from the Travel Shop at Lancaster Bus Station.

Stagecoach has three times been independently assessed as offering the lowest fares of any major bus operator in the UK and the fare freeze proves Stagecoach’s commitment to delivering affordable travel for bus passengers in Lancaster.

Passengers looking for the biggest savings should head to the new website

With megarider Xtra, a monthly payment offers the most value for money for long term travel with unlimited travel in Lancaster from just £12 a week. Seven day travel available on bus is just £14.50.

Following a successful UK wide promotional offer, young people can continue to make the most out of reduced travel. The Under 19s £2 Bay dayrider ticket will become a permanent ticket and a new £4 Lancashire dayrider ticket will be introduced to support those travelling across Lancashire.

The new ticket offers more than 45 per cent off the current Lancashire dayrider fare.

Matthew Cranwell, managing director of Stagecoach Cumbria and North Lancashire, said: “Our price freeze is a real boost for our customers. We face a challenging economic environment from rising costs and cuts to public sector spending but we have worked hard to protect our customers to ensure bus travel remains affordable.

“We are committed to providing local bus services to passengers of all ages and we continue to reinvest the money from fares in improving our services, adding new buses, extending smart ticketing and providing better customer information online and direct to smartphones.”
