Bus Fare Increase For Under 16s

I am shocked to learn that bus fares for school children under 16 on the Pocklington to York route are to increase by 20%.

I have been contacted by residents in my Ward who are seeing an increase in bus fares for their children to get to school on the Pocklington to York buses of 20% this month.

16 to 18 year olds enjoy a 20% discount but under 16s do not. How can it be justified to give an 18 year old a discount to get to school but not a 12 year old?

In addition there is no option for a weekly child bus pass.

Children are losing their 10% discount PLUS having their fare increased by another 10% when other people are able to get discounts.

I have requested ERYC to look into this?
