Spent much of this morning trying to make sense of this Not exactly consumer friendly... #fares

The maintenance of subsidy funding for public transport for 2015 at present levels was a welcome announcement in the recent Budget. This has enabled the Authority to moderate the fares increases necessary so that the operators can maintain as far as possible the current level of services and can also respond to sectors where demand is growing and capacity needs to be increased. Also, the Authority aims to increase Leap Card use to simplify fares payments, improve bus journey times and cross-mode transfers. The Authority has also incorporated a wide-ranging structural review of fares across and between all operators, with a view to simplifying and streamlining fares to encourage increased use of public transport by removing some of the confusion that currently exists around anomalous and illogical fares and pricing.
