More choice and flexibility on the buses as new zones and fares are introduced

New fares have been introduced on East Yorkshire buses in and around the Driffield area which the company says will make travelling ‘easier than ever before’.

Existing weekly tickets, which passengers could use to get between two towns or villages, are being replaced with new zones.

East Yorkshire says the new system will mean simpler fares and the options will offer better value to people studying, working part time, or splitting home and office working.

A statement on the company’s website said: “We’ve improved our zones to work better for you, with new coverage areas for Bridlington Country, Driffield, Beverley, York Country and York City to replace point-to-point weekly tickets.

“You’ll now be able to travel further with your tickets, with more choice and flexibility.”

The new Driffield zone tickets cover Burton Agnes, Nafferton, Wansford, Sunderlandwick, Hutton Cranswick, Lund, Middleton-on-the-Wolds, North Dalton and Kirkburn.

Unlimited travel between those areas will cost £5.75 per day, £23 for seven days or £82.80 for 30 days.

A Flexi5 ticket, which can be used on any five days in a 12-month period, is also £23 and a Flexi20 ticket is £82.80.

There is also a new Bridlington Country zone, which includes Bridlington, Driffield, Filey and villages including Kilham, Burton Agnes, Nafferton and Burton Fleming.

One-day tickets for that zone are £9.50, with weeklies and Flexi5 tickets priced £38 and 30-day tickets and Flexi20 tickets costing £136.80.

Single and return tickets will not be affected and all of the new tickets can be bought on the East Yorkshire Buses app.

Passengers who already have an active ticket, have been assured that they will continue to work as normal until their expiry date.
