FIRST Bus in Bradford is hoping to get new customers onboard by announcing a special ticket offer for January.

A day travel ticket at weekends for up to five customers travelling together anywhere in West Yorkshire will be just £5.

The limited offer starts on Saturday, January 2 knocking 40 per cent of the current group-ticket price price.

Most fares will stay unchanged including all single, daily and weekly tickets as part of the latest price review but there will be some increases to monthly and annual tickets from Monday, January 4 to take into account rising costs in the business.

Paul Turner, Head of Commercial for First Bus in West Yorkshire said: “From time-to-time we need to review our fares to meet rising costs and I'm pleased that we've kept any increases to an absolute minimum with most prices unchanged."
