From 7th April, 2018 Safeguard Coaches will introduce new fares on its Route 4 & 5 buses, which, amongst other general fare changes, sees a range of highly innovative ‘firsts’ to encourage and retain young people and families on public transport.

Key amongst the change is the introduction of the these three new ticket types:

  • Kid For A Quid – Just £1 gets a 5 to 16 year old a bus ticket for any one way or return journey at any time with certain one way journeys as little as 50p.
  • Young Adult Ticket – For 17 to 24 year olds – with a maximum one way fare of £1.50 and a £2.50 return journey fare. Recognising the fact that whilst these young people often have the option of using a car, reduced fares on a WiFi-equipped bus, combine with a regular and frequent service, offers a real alternative.
  • Family Day Ticket – Giving families of up to 5 people, the ability to travel all day on Safeguard’s buses for just £7.50.

The fully updated fares will be available to view from the 7th April here.

From the 21st April, Safeguard will also change the timetable on its Route 4 & 5 service to improve reliability and offer new journey opportunities, particularly in the early evenings and on Sundays.
