Hinckleybus has announced changes to its ticket range as part of further improvements and have promised further exciting developments are ahead for the company.

The company’s local manager, John Wright explained, “We have looked carefully at our fares structure at Hinckleybus and have been able to work with our colleagues in Arriva Midlands to make tickets interavailable. Our new range of local saver tickets are great value and cover an area that includes Hinckley, Nuneaton, Barwell and Earl Shilton”

“We have had to increase single fares along with returns of £2 and above outside the Hinckley town area but these have been kept as low as possible at 10p. No one likes to increase their prices but, as everyone knows from their domestic bills, costs are steadily rising. The price rise will allow us to continue our significant investment in a modern fleet and meet rising business costs.”

He went on to add that the business was planning some further changes soon, “We have some exciting plans for the Hinckleybus business for later in the summer and we will be announcing details of these shortly”
