First cuts Bristol fares
George Ferguson, mayor of Bristol, says: “This is the welcome result of long and hard negotiations reinforced by a relentless campaign by citizen Daniel Farr. I particularly welcome the young people’s concessions.
“Most Bristol people will win, and a simpler fare structure, with savings for weekly tickets, will help commuters, visitors and those making trips for leisure get the best out of Bristol by bus.”
Farr, who founded the Make Fares Fair Campaign in the city, describes First’s announcement as “a big step in the right direction”.
