Sheffield Supertram: Single tram fares to rocket by 40 per cent as price of some bus tickets also rises
and live on Freeview channel 276
A single ticket on the Supertram network within Sheffield had been capped at £2, thanks to funding from the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority. But this limit is set to increase to £2.80, with the new cap remaining in place until at least November 30, 2024.
The £2 cap on most bus fares across the UK, which is funded by the Government, is set to stay until December 31, 2024, after being extended again earlier this month.
But in South Yorkshire, concessionary child single fares on buses and trams will increase from 80p to £1 for holders of Zoom Under 16 and Zoom 16-18 travel passes.
For passengers with a Zoom Beyond 18-21 pass, the 80p single fare on buses will rise to £1.50 on services run by First and Stagecoach. On services run by other operators, full adult fares will be charged, capped at £2. The 80p single fare on Supertram will rise to £2, or £4 for a return.
There are a number of daily, weekly and monthly tickets available to young people with a Zoom pass.
