Wrexham County Borough Council councillor for Rossett, Hugh Jones, said they were looking at arranging a meeting with Arriva for early September "and the issue of fare stages
will be on the agenda."
The adult fare for a journey lasting more than three fare stages
is pounds 1.70 on National Express West Midlands buses in Birmingham, compared to a pounds 1 flat fare for people travelling in buses in London who have an Oyster card.
UNDER the current pricing structure, a family of two adults and two children, would expect to pay a total of pounds 3.90 for a journey into the city passing through nine or more fare stages
. If the proposals went ahead this cost would rise to pounds 5.20.
Proposals to revise fare stages
on tram and bus services, involving some increases, have been made by Birmingham Transport Department.
