Cuts

Bus Fares for Children 

Location: UK » North West » L
Sector: Transport

From 1/4/12, Arriva Merseyside will increase child fares by 33% due to the usual excuses such as rising costs and a 20% cut in the bus operators grant from the government.  A child fare will now be two thirds of the adult one (Which by the way are going up by 10p as well).  Merseytravel have slammed the decision, but they have as much power as the Liberal Democrats (i.e. None!)
