Give Thornbury and Yate a Travel Zone

Sign our Petition

Two years ago First Bus heeded our calls for a low flat rate fare within the towns of Yate and Thornbury but those living in the surrounding villages still face unfair bus fares, compared to those living in other parts of the West of England.

For example, if you live in Lympsham, just over 4 miles from the Grand Pier Weston-super-Mare you can travel for £1.60 one-way or purchase a Weston-super-Mare Travel Zone fare for just £2.70 and travel anywhere in the zone for the whole day.

By contrast if you live in Coalpit Heath, only 2 miles from Yate Bus Station, just a single ticket to Yate will cost you £2.30. If you want a day pass for multiple journeys you will have to buy one covering the whole of the West of England and costing £7.50*.

This isn't fair and it doesn't encourage people to get out of their cars and on to the bus - which would cut congestion and help tackle climate change.

Give Thornbury and Yate a Travel Zone

We, the undersigned, call for a Yate and Thornbury Travel Zone to make bus travel more attractive for residents and create fairer fares for all.
