Some fares on Nottingham City Transport services will increase in price later this month, it has been announced.

Nottingham City Transport has today said it will increase some fares from Sunday, March 29 so they can ‘continue investing in the city’s bus network, which included the purchase of 77 brand new buses in the last 12 months, and to meet increased operating costs’. 

Single fares on the buses, NCTX Buses app and Robin Hood Pay As You Go will increase by 10p for adults and under 19s and the adult day ticket will increase by 20p to £4.40.

The Under 19 all day ticket, Grouprider, Network Rider, Park & Ride Return fare, Nightbus fares and all Outer Area fares will all be frozen at their current prices.

“Increases will never be popular or welcome, but the increases are necessary to cover rises in our day to day operating costs and our investment in 77 brand new, low emission buses introduced over the last year, which significantly improve local air quality”
