Bus journey fares are increased in Jersey

Bus fares in Jersey are planned to be raised for longer journeys.

The Transport and Technical Services department said from 10 January all longer bus trips, or band B journeys, will rise from £1.60 to £1.70.

There are no changes to the £1.10, band A, journeys operated by Connex, the island's only public bus operator.

Tristen Dodd, acting director of transport, said: "Fares must be set at a realistic level and keep up with the cost of living increases."
