Travel for Child fare until you are 19 - all day, every day
We know that 14 is too young to be hit with adult fares and do you hate the 9 o’clock rule? Dorset residents can see this on the front page of today’s Bournemouth Daily Echo or read it on their website[ http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/districts/purbeck/ ]
Well from Saturday 13th February we are changing the rules for bus fares for young people.
* Adult fares will only kick in on your 19th birthday.
* Accompanied children up to the age of 7 will go free.
* The dreaded 9 o’clock will be scrapped. Young peoples’ fares will be available at all times. The only exceptions are Nightbuses in Bournemouth and some college routes, where the college tell us what to charge.
* For families travelling together we are coming up with some great group deals. More to follow soon.
