From Monday 12th February 2018 we're revising our fares on our buses that operate between King's Lynn & Hunstanton (and onto Wells-next-the-Sea).
Fares within King's Lynn town itself and other 'local fares' will also be revised on all routes from locations such as Hardwick, QE Hospital and South Wootton.
Any increases to fares are always kept to a minimum, in fact this is the first time in three years that we've changed the fares beyond King's Lynn to Hunstanton. Don't forget fares on this route are still around 15% cheaper than they were before we existed!
Unfortunately the cost of operating bus services in West Norfolk (and indeed the UK as a whole) has increased significantly over recent years is necessary due to a number factors including (but not limited to):
> Increased traffic congestion - This has meant that we have to put extra resources into the network to help ensure that buses run to time.
> Stagnation in the amount of reimbursement we receive for concessionary journeys - the amount we receive as reimbursement has not increased enough to compensate for additional costs
> General increase in other operating costs - such as parts and components for vehicles
Examples of changes to our adult fares are as follows:
|King's Lynn to Hunstanton||£3.60||£5.80||£23.00||£86.00|
|King's Lynn to Heacham||£3.50||£5.60||£22.00||£84.00|
|King's Lynn to Dersingham or Snettisham||£3.30||£5.30||£21.00||£79.00|
|Hunstanton to Heacham||£1.80||£3.00||£11.00||£40.00|
|King's Lynn to Wells-next-the-Sea||£5.50||£8.80||£35.00||£134.00|
|King's Lynn to South Wootton or Q.E Hospital||£1.80||£3.00||£11.00||£40.00|
Don't forget that our two-trip tickets are valid for up to one calendar month so with a holdall card the cost per journey is still less than £1.45 for an adult for trips within Lynn!
