<![CDATA[City Service Fares Revised from Sunday]]> http://www.prestonbus.co.uk/news/CityServiceFaresRevisedfromSunday_394.html From Sunday 11th October 2015 Preston Bus city service fares change.

The present Adult Single fares of £1.35, £1.55 and £1.75 rise by five pence to £1.40, £1.60 and £1.80.

The EasiDay pass will rise by 10p to £3.50

EasiWeek and Easi28Day changes

The Adult EasiWeek will increase by 30 pence to £10.80, the Child EasiWeek will become £9.00, an increase of 20 pence. The Easi28Day passes will each increase by £1, with the Adult Easi28Day at £39.00 and Child Easi28Day £30.00 from Sunday.

Child flat fare unchanged

The £1 child flat fare remains frozen at its 2013 level - no change either in the popular £5.00 family day ticket, which allows up to two adults and up to three children to travel together all day.

Park & Ride Fares Simplified

On Monday 12th October the Park & Ride Adult Day Return is set to rise from £1.40 to £1.50. However Preston Bus is slashing the peak time fare (before 09:30 weekdays) from £2.50 to £1.50, making city parking dramatically cheaper for commuters and early shoppers. The new simplified fare is also reflected in the single £13.50 Saverstrip on offer, which gives customers ten return journeys for the price of nine (available from the Walton-le-Dale Park & Ride Office). There is no change to the 60p child day return or the £3.00 P&R group ticket.
