NETWORK Warrington will be freezing its bus fares this year.

The company made the announcement following a 'number of passenger enquiries regarding ticket prices, in light of announced fare increases from other public transport providers'.

A spokesman added: "We are seeking to clarify that our existing ticket prices will continue to be honoured across our entire network.

"We will also continue with our recently reduced fares on some routes.

"Network Warrington operates an extensive number of bus routes across the borough, including early mornings, evenings and weekends.

"The company's last fares increase was in August 2015."

Network Warrington's adult single fares range from £1.60 to £4.20 for longer journeys, with children, aged between five and 15, travelling at half the price.

Day returns are available for most journeys.

Adult day returns range from £3 to £5.90, with children again travelling at half the cost.

Touch & Go prices are £25.50 for a weekly card, £90 for a monthly and £760 for an annual one.

For students, aged 11 to 19, a Touch & Go weekly card is £17, a monthly is £60 and an annual is £460.
