The cost of getting a bus will rise for some in 2011

Islanders making longer journeys by bus will see the cost of their tickets increase from January.

The States of Jersey have increased the cost of a band B ticket from £1.60 to £1.70 while child and student tickets will also stay at 60p.

They have decided to keep band A tickets at £1.10 to "ensure it remains rounded to the nearest 10p for passenger convenience".

It is thought the child and student fare will rise to 70p from 2012.
