Bristol mayor George Ferguson launches new three-stop bus fare
BRISTOL Mayor George Ferguson has helped launch a new three-stop rider fare with Wessex buses.
UWE Bristol and the University of Bristol have been working with Wessex buses to get fares down for Bristol passengers.
Three stop journeys on all Wessex Red services will now cost just £1 with the new "3 stop rider" fare.
Wessex Red is a partnership between the University of the West of England, University of Bristol and Wessex Bus.

They operate nine routes across Bristol – all of which are available to the public – with the latest additions being the 13 service from Broadmead to Bradley Stoke via Fishponds and the 19 service from the Centre to Filton via Cotham.
Steve Ward, Travel Planner at UWE Bristol said: "Any member of the public can now make a short journey for just £1 cash.
"Using our services is now as easy as 1-2-3: £1 for a short journey, £2 for any other single journey, and £3 for all-day travel.
"We are responding to the Bristol Mayor's aim to see lower fares and higher quality buses in Bristol and look forward to continuing to grow our services in the city."
Tony Clayton, Sustainability Manager for Transport at the University of Bristol, said: "These lower prices will hopefully encourage people to use the Wessex Red bus service more and leave the car at home.
"It's not just a service for students – everyone in the city can jump on board and benefit from cheaper travel across the city."
