Cardiff Bus has launched two new fare deals on its services for short journeys and passengers travelling in small groups.

The new “Short hop” fare costs £1 for a single ticket, which covers a single journey within one of three fare zones: the city centre, Canton and Albany Road.

The “Groupiff” fare allows four adults to travel on Cardiff Bus services after 7pm Monday to Saturday, all day Sunday and on bank holidays for £6. Each “Groupiff” ticket will be valid until the last bus.

Marketing manager at Cardiff Bus Victoria Rees-Price said: “At Cardiff Bus we strive to meet the needs of our customers in order to increase the enjoyment of their journey. The introduction of the ‘Short hop’ comes after dicussions with passengers told us that cost effectiveness is crucial in how the make travel decisions within the city and to accommodate this, we have made the necessary changes to our fare structure.”

Cardiff Bus chairman Ben Thomas added that it was hoped the smaller fare would reduce the number of cars on the roads in Canton, Cathays and Grangetown, and show public transport as cost effective.
