Wexford Bus is introducing a range of new fares from January 23rd 2012.
In order to maintain the level of service and standards provided, a reluctant decision has been taken to increase a selection of the fares. This price increase is due to a 25% rise in fuel costs in the last 12 months coupled with the 2% VAT increase (which cannot be reclaimed) and a 30% hike in insurance costs since the last fare adjustment.
Wexford Bus will continue to offer excellent value to its customers. For example:
• Annual tax saver tickets are available at €24 net per week (after tax and USC relief) an increase of only €1.38 per week.
• Weekly student tickets start at €6 per journey between Enniscorthy and Dublin, an increase of €1 per trip.
This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, but all Wexford Bus services must be self financing as no grants or subsidies are received to support the services. Thus, with the steep rise in operational costs these increases are unavoidable.
