TravelMaster Fare Changes

PASSENGERS who purchase a CityBus, CityWide, RConnect, DonConnect or SYConnect ticket will see a change to the price they pay for their tickets from 2nd April 2017.

Ticket prices were last changed in November 2015 when some prices were reduced; however, these new fares have been amended following a price review to help to continue to offer a high-quality travel service.

Passengers will be aware that ticket prices were reduced in November 2015, however the tickets affected by this increase remain competitively priced and are in fact cheaper than the original fares introduced in 2012. At that time the popular Citywide 7 day ticket cost £17.

The price changes coming into effect on 2nd April 2017 are:

CityBus Day £4.30

CityBus 7 Day £15.00

CityBus 28 Day £56.00

CityWide Day £4.60

CityWide 7 Day £16.00

CityWide 28 Day £60.00

SYConnect Day No Change

SYConnect 7 Day £22.00

SYConnect 28 Day £84.00

RConnect Day No Change

RConnect 7 Day £16.00

RConnect 28 Day £60.00

DonConnect Day No Change

DonConnect 7 Day £16.00

DonConnect 28 Day £60.00

A TravelMaster spokesperson said; “It is a difficult decision to increase the cost of our products, however, these changes follow a lengthy price freeze and have been introduced to ensure that our range remains sustainable and that we can continue to offer South Yorkshire’s transport users some of the best value multi-operator tickets in the country”.

Alongside these price revisions TravelMaster will also be introducing a 50p charge for the issuing of a new smartcard. This is to encourage their reuse and follows over two years of cards being issued free of charge to customers with almost half of those only ever having had one product loaded to them. This charge will not apply to personalised cards ordered through MyTSY.com and is less than the production cost for the card.
