Young people’s fares increase in South Yorkshire

Have your say

FARES are going up for holders of the South Yorkshire young people’s concessionary travel card.

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive is increasing the charge from 60p to 70p from April 1, for journeys on buses, trams and local train services run by Northern Rail.

However, Barnsley Council said it is not increasing its MiCard fares for under 18s travelling on buses within the Barnsley area, which are to remain at 30p per single journey.
