wish the bus's were that cheap,now they ''are''a rip off!!
£2.50 one way on the bus to birkenhead from new ferry! or £4.20 day ticket which is cheaper if you use the bus a few times in the day.
That seems a mad pricing structure - a day ticket cheaper than a return???
Yeah Mel gets em when she is working in the CAB, either £5.40 to Wallasey and back, or a day ticket for £4.20! You do the maths lmao! And on top of that, she was, until last week, attending Uni on the same days, so it would have been costing a further £2.60 from Wallasey to Liverpool. so £8.00 vs £4.20.
Those day tickets are certainly worth it, though having said that, you can get a saveaway for £4.60 and that covers the trains and First buses as well!! Though the day ticket on the buses covers the whole of the northwest and wales iirc?
Stupid pricing, I guess its more about getting the average spend per customer higher, but its outrageous when you think one stop on a train/bus can cost about £2.00 nowadays.
I remember, when I was a kid, Leasowe - Bidston station was 15p, now I dunno what the child fare is now, or what the adult fare was then, but the adult fares where around double the child fare. Im sure the last time I checked, it was like £1.50 to do the same route as an adult.
