6:01am 5th January 2014

The York’s Quality Bus Partnership is reducing the price of the ‘All York Week’ and ‘All York Family’ tickets from today (5 January 2014).

‘All York’ is a range of tickets that enable passengers to travel on any local bus services within the York boundary, making it possible to travel on different bus companies' services, using just one ticket at a low price.

Ticket types include:

All York Day - Valid for one person on any bus in the York area on the day of issue. Price: £4.50

All York Young Person's Day - Valid for one 11-16 year-old on any bus in the York area on the day of issue. Valid after 9am weekdays & any time at weekends and bank holidays. Price: £2.30

All York Family - Valid for up to five people (including up to 2 adults) on any bus in the York area on the day of issue.
Price: reduced to just £9.00 from 5 January 2014.
All York Week - Valid for one person on any bus in the York area for 7 consecutive days. Price: reduced to just £18.00 from 5 January 2014.

Cllr Dave Merrett, Cabinet Member for Transport, Planning and Sustainability, said: “City of York Council is working closely with all local bus operators to raise even more awareness of the benefits of travelling by bus in York through our ‘York by Bus’ campaign.

“Our aim is to encourage more people to travel by bus and increase passenger numbers by 18 per cent by 2015. We know this campaign will help to deliver real benefits for the city and for every £1 spent, this project should deliver £4 of benefits in York by reducing congestion, improving air quality and health, and reducing road accidents.   

“The campaign is supported by all bus operators in York and the York Quality Bus Partnership and also builds on a package of improvements funded through part of the £3.5 million Government Better Bus Area fund (BBAF) awarded to the council last year. The BBAF fund is also being used to provide enhanced bus stop facilities and new and additional real time information screens across the city centre, better quality timetables citywide, and a new transport smartcard for York which will be launched later in 2014.”

Passengers can buy All York tickets from the driver on board any of the participating companies' buses below.  

  • Arriva Yorkshire
  • Coastliner (including Transdev York & Unibus)
  • ConnexionsBuses (Harrogate Coach Travel)
  • East Yorkshire Motor Services
  • Eddie Brown
  • First (including Park & Ride services)
  • Reliance
  • Stephenson's
  • Utopia

Once passengers have bought their ticket they can make as many journeys with as many different bus companies as they want for the rest of the day, or week as appropriate.
