Stagecoach in Cumbria set to raise bus fares by 2.5%
Bus fares in Cumbria are set to rise by an average of 2.5% from Monday.
Stagecoach has invested nearly £300m in new vehicles over the past four years with the aim of making all buses accessible and meeting emissions standards.
In a statement in the North West Evening Mail the company said: “We appreciate that fare changes will not be popular at this time.
“We need to make changes to reflect rising staff costs as the economy grows and because of government cuts to public sector investment in buses.”
