Changes to routes PH1, Ph2, PH3, PH4, PH5, PH6, PH7...

The bus company Connexions will begin to operate services PH1 to PH8 from September 2020. There will also be some minor changes to some routes and times.

From September until December 2020, these services will remain under contract to the West Yorkshire Combined Authority. You may recall from previous notices (View a copy of the original letter) that it was expected these services would be operated fully commercially by Connexions from April 2020 and not under contract to the WYCA, however this has been deferred due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Therefore all current passes including the MyDay and Under 19 Tickets will still remain valid until December 2020.

However from December, the commercialisation of these services will mean that they will be outside of the West Yorkshire Concessionary Travel Scheme. As a result, our Mcard products such as MyDay and Under 19 Weekly and Monthly tickets, will not be accepted.

Instead, Connexions will be introducing the following fare options:

  • Single trip £1.50 (bought from driver)
  • Weekly £12 (bought from driver)
  • Monthly £50 (bought via the operator)  
  • Termly £180 (bought via the operator)     

Where children are entitled to free travel, their zero fare School Passes will be replaced by Connexions zero fare Boarding Passes for the relevant service.

In addition to the journeys provided at the end of the school day, Connexions will be operating additional journeys to accommodate students participating in after-school activities.

All Connexions tickets will be available for use on these services.
