New bus fares - Yate roadshow 27 June - but how reliable are they now?

Following a consultation, First Bus have announced new fares for our area. This Friday, 27 June, a roadshow to explain the changes will be in Yate shopping centre, from 10am to 4pm.   

The main changes are:
  • The cost of single tickets will be based on the distance you travel within your chosen area.
  • There will be no return tickets but First Day tickets will still be available and are probably the best option for multiple journeys.
  • Up to 2 children under five travel free with each fare-paying adult or young person.
  • There will be a 50% discount for children aged 5-15.
  • There will be a 30% discount for 16-21 year olds and students.
Cheaper fares should make bus travel more attractive, but what's your experience of the reliability? We're hearing stories of delays on some services. If you regularly experience problems, please let us know by commenting below.
