New MCard prices in 2020

There will be changes to some MCard ticket prices from 2 January 2020.

Good news! Some ticket prices have been frozen including DaySavers on Pink MCards and all MCard bus tickets for young people under 19 until September 2020.


Routes PH1, PH2, PH3, PH4, PH5, PH6, PH7 - Prince Henry's Grammar School - effective from 24th February 2020

The bus companies Connexions and Kilvington of Leeds will operate the above schools services on a commercial basis from 24 February 2020.

This means that services will no longer be contracted or subsidised by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, which puts them 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 and Kilvington of Leeds 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 and Kilvington of Leeds zero fare Boarding Passes for the relevant service.

Kilvington of Leeds will operate route PH6, Connexions will operate all other PH routes.


C78 - All Saints Catholic College - effective from January 2020

From January 2020, route C78 will no longer be contracted or subsidised by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority but will be operated commercially by First West Yorkshire. As a result, our Mcard products such as MyDay and Under 19 Weekly and Monthly tickets, will not be accepted.

Pupils will be able to purchase a Weekly Ticket for £13.50 either on the bus from the driver or via First West Yorkshire's Mobile ticket app. The ticket can also be used on other connecting First Bus services in the Halifax and Huddersfield area.

Moreover, parents and carers can buy the Weekly Ticket on their mobile ticket app and transfer it to their child’s phone. More information on this feature can be found on First West Yorkhire's website.

Single fares of £1.40 will still be available for less frequent users.
