Fares go up for Bristol bus users

Bus passengers in Bristol and Somerset are to pay more as fares are rising by an average of 6%.

Operator First attributes the increase this week to rising fuel costs.

Most adult and child standard singles and returns in Bristol will go up by 10p, in Weston-super-Mare and Bath by 15p and the rest of Somerset 20p.

A spokesman for the company said a review of fares had been put off for "as long as possible" and some tickets had become cheaper.
