  • Go off the rails this January – bus ticket prices are frozen!

    Award-winning bus operator Cityzap has confirmed a New Year price freeze on all tickets.


    It’s now even better value to ride Cityzap between Leeds and York in 2020, as rail prices rise once again. At just £38, a week’s unlimited travel on Cityzap is a whopping £23.30 per week cheaper than taking the train.


    And it’s much better value even than that! The £38 ticket can be used on all Transdev buses across the North, including Britain’s Most scenic Route Coastliner between Leeds, York, Malton and onto Whity and Scarborough, the 36 every 10 minutes from Leeds to Harrogate, as well as into West Yorkshire and across the pennines into Lancashire.


    There’s a bus between Leeds and York every 30 minutes on Cityzap and buses are fitted with a sat-nav so the driver can pick the quickest route and avoid any traffic queues.


    The Cityzap’s General Manager Ben Mansfield said: “Many of those who travel regularly with us on Cityzap between York and Leeds have already switched to us from the train, and they tell us our frequent service, high quality and great value for money are the reasons why.


    “Our Cityzap buses are packed with customer-friendly features, including free superfast 4G Wi-Fi, USB power points at every seat, and plush leather coach seats upstairs.  Our friendly drivers can also give on-the-spot advice to make sure new passengers get the best ticket for their journey.


    “As just £38 per week it’s great value and our price freeze sets an even stronger difference against using the train. With all the added benefits of unlimited travel on any of our buses, the ticket for a ride to work can take you on days out into the city and trips to the coast.”


    In an industry-leading first all Cityzap buses have contactless capping for customers who Tap&Cap. This means for the first time ever, the weekly ticket can be paid for by contactless card even though it’s above the £30 limit. Customers just need to tap their contactless card, smartphone or smart watch onto the reader as they get on and off the bus and their weekly costs will automatically be capped at £38.


    All other ticket prices are frozen too, on local buses in and around York, Leeds and further afield. A week’s travel within York is just £24.50 and within Leeds on other Transdev buses is just £18.
