Changes to the 2019 Scheduled Bus Timetable, Itinerary and Fares.

The Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure is seeking public feedback on proposed changes to the 2019 Scheduled Bus Timetable, Itinerary and Fares.

The revised fares are planned to be introduced from Monday 1st April with the associated Itinerary and Timetable changes due to take effect on 29th April 2019.

The principal fare changes will see the introduction of a new £5 Around Island ('Staged') Fare on the Routes 91/92 aimed at people seeking to use the service as an 'Island Tour' as opposed to a scheduled bus service which is its principal purpose.  Concession fares will still apply on this route.  Pay As You Go (PAYG) Top Up charges will increase from 55p to 60p per journey and a new contactless payment option will be introduced in the summer with fares matching equivalent cash fares.  Other modest fare increases are proposed to the following Smart Card products:

The Around Island ('Staged') Fare, in conjunction with the relocation of Route 91/92 services to Stand H at the Town Terminus and the operation of an enhanced 'Island Tour' public excursion service by Island Coachways is designed to relieve pressure from scheduled bus services on Cruise ship days.  Operating exclusively from the Picquet House (Stand A), the Island Tour will offer a guided tour in air conditioned coaches with various photo opportunities along the route at a cost of £10 per passenger (£5 for children). 

Proposed timetable changes will see the removal of the Route 62, introduced last year in an attempt to address overloading issues on Route 91/92 services, a slight reduction in 'off-peak' service levels on Routes P2, 51 and 52 and the introduction of additional early evening services on a number of routes to provide an extended service during the summer months. 

A move away from 'clock-face' departures from the Town Terminus will reduce congestion at stops close to Town.  As a result timings along certain routes will differ to the existing timetable so the public are asked to familiarise themselves with the proposed changes and comment on any specific issues that might impact their use of the service, both negative or positive.

A Gazette Notice detailing all of the proposed changes is attached and further information is displayed here or available at www.buses.gg and www.gov.gg/buses

The standard cash fare will remain unchanged at £1 as will the existing Nightowl fare of £2.50 for late night services provided on Friday and Saturday nights.

The consultation period runs until Tuesday 26th March 2019 and the public are invited to submit comments in writing to The Director of Traffic and Highway Services, Bulwer Avenue Office, Bulwer Avenue, St. Sampson, GY1 3HY or by e-mail to traffic@gov.gg

For further information please contact the Passenger Transport Office on Tel: 202228.
