Multi-Operator Tickets
« on: February 26, 2009, 05:19:00 PM »
Taken from here:

Norfolk County Council is currently undertaking consultation on a proposal to introduce a multi-operator bus ticketing scheme under the provisions of sections 135-138 of the Transport Act, 2000.

Subject to the outcome of consultation and feedback received from bus companies it is proposed that the ticketing scheme would come into operation on and from 1 June 2009. It would allow multi-operator ticket holders unlimited travel within defined areas surrounding Norwich and King's Lynn on most local bus services.

Consultation is being carried out as specified by the Act, if you would like further details than please Email stating 'ticket scheme' in the subject box, alternatively for further information please contact the Network Projects Manager, Passenger Transport Group, Planning and Transportation, Norfolk County Council, Martineau Lane, County Hall, Norwich NR1 2SG or telephone 01603 224357.

The consultation period will be from Monday 15 December 2008 to Friday 27 February 2009 and your comments are welcomed.

It sounds like a good idea, but the area covered in the 'Kings Lynn Area' map seems rather expansive for the 3.50 all day travel price, good for passengers, but is it good for the bus companys? for example an adult travelling from Terrington St Clement to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital with Norfolk Green would normally pay 2.60 for a return from Terrington to Kings Lynn then 1.70 for a Kings Lynn day ticket = 4.30 but with the new day ticket it would only be 3.50 hence the bus operator losing potentially losing revenue. But it could work both ways, with advantages and disadvantages for both the bus companys and passengers... i suppose these sort of things will come out in the consultation and determine whether it goes ahead of not.
