Bus fares set to increase

BUS fares will be going up across the North East.

Arriva has announced that most adult fares below £3 and all child fares have been frozen, but other ticket prices will rise from Sunday.

Most adult zonal day tickets will rise by 10p or 20p, along with some single and return fares, and weekly tickets will go up by 50p.

Some four-weekly fares will also increase, but there could be a ten per cent discount if bought online.
