Bus company Stagecoach has announced that fares on its services across Warwickshire will rise by an average of 3 per cent from Sunday.
The cost of a monthly Rugby Megarider ticket, which offers passengers unlimited travel for 28 days, will rise from £48 to £49.50. The cost of the company’s online seven-day and 28-day tickets will be frozen at the 2013 ‘on bus’ price.
Steve Burd, managing director of Stagecoach Midlands, said: “We know fare changes are unwelcome for our passengers. We have done our best to keep fare changes to a minimum in the face of rising costs.”
