and I seem to remember that when the franchise started there was a claim that prices would never rise greater than the rate of inflation. However, you can get round that by removing tickets and introducing others.Yes they do. The buses are fitted with "fast tag" activators so that no cash changes hands, but it's £2.80 per trip through the tunnel for each bus.
No doubt the bus operators obtain some form of discount for bulk buying or have a contract of some sort?

I note that the Merseyrail website says that prices for the new daysaver passes "start from" £3.20. That suggests that more than one will be available. The website says little more, which suggests that they have something to hide, (a large fare increase for short journeys).
If there is one thing I can't abide with the railway since privitisation, it's the underhand way in which fare increases are brought in - often marketed (masked) as being of benefit to the customer but in actual fact of more benefit to the operator.
Quite underhand and corrupt really?
