These were 80p or £1.00 depending on the service. These will not be increased to £1.20 but will instead be capped and standardised at £1.00 single for the 2021/22 school year across all routes.

For regular users, there will also be the option of a £8.00 weekly ticket that can be purchased from the driver. Note, the £8.00 fare is a season ticket and is valid for one school week Monday to Friday only. It can only be purchased on the first journey made each Monday. Refunds are not available if the ticket is unused/partially used nor may be carried over to another week.
