New Day Bus Ticket for Young People in York


6:01am 25th May 2013

Young people can make the most of this half-term and all future bus trips by travelling for less in York with a new All York Young Person’s Day ticket.

The new ticket, launching today means young people between the ages of 11-16 can now enjoy a day’s travel on participating bus companies throughout the city for only £2.30. The ticket will be valid from 9am on weekdays and all day on weekends and bank holidays.

The first ‘All York’ bus tickets for adults were launched last July to build on the council’s commitment to ‘Get York Moving’ and to improve the city’s public transport services.

Cllr Dave Merrett, Cabinet Member for Planning, Sustainability and Transport, said: “One of the commitments of ‘Get York Moving’ was to introduce a single ticket that could be used on all operators’ bus services, and it is great that young people can now take advantage of this easier way to travel.”

Tickets are valid on services run by:

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