I READ with disbelief that Network Warrington management thought their new, more expensive bus tickets represented value for money. I can buy, online, an all Greater Manchester system ticket for £59.40.

For that I get to travel the vast area of Greater Manchester wheras in Warrington for £84 I get to travel a much smaller area.

Even buying the System One Manchester ticket off-line only costs £71.50 which is cheaper and better value than the Network Warrington offer.
