Trentbarton has announced they are set to increase some of their bus fares – citing high inflation and rising fuel costs as factors. The company stated that some groups of customers will face no changes at all when the changes come into effect on Sunday, April 10.

Many fares are also being frozen, but with rising costs of fuel, parts and wages, as well as the aforementioned high inflation, trentbarton have increased fares for adults and students travelling on its mango line. However, trentbarton’s mango app will continue to offer its discounted singles, new zonal caps and rolling caps.

Customer feedback recently called for a simpler and clearer fare structure. Trentbarton say that any increases to singles are being minimised.

The company have said increased revenue from those fares which have gone up will enable trentbarton to pay for its fuel and staff and to continue to invest in its services and fleet.

Some of the changes

  • mango off-peak day cap for trentbarton land is £6.30
  • mango peak seven-day cap for trentbarton land is £10.10
  • The introduction of zone 7 day and 28 day caps to mango enables customers to access cheaper caps as mango works out the best price for them.
  • Most customers buying single tickets in Derby will see no increase and the number of Derby zone tickets is reduced.

Tom Morgan, group commercial director at trentbarton, said: “We only increase fares when we have to, and the current inflationary pressures on our costs have to be covered for our services to remain viable. We are also simplifying our fare structure after listening to customer feedback and accelerating improvements which make our most popular ways to pay – mango, travel contactless and zigzag – the best value for money.

“Keeping our single fares attractive means we are the great value and green choice for occasional travellers keen to get on board with the best way to travel for people and their environment.”
