Web admin note: Previous story line on http://forum.svra.org.uk/viewtopic.php?t=2342
[PJ January 2018].


Apologies if I have missed this elsewhere on the site. Fares for 2018 are now online at http://www.svr.co.uk/Fares.aspx. Interesting to note the adult/senior fare is now the same, with no discount as in previous years. FOTL adult/senior at 21 OTD or 19.50 pre-book.[/url]

Dear JHope, can you tell me how much the fare has gone up by since last year?

Strange what can still be found online.
http://www.svr.co.uk/pdf/Brochures/SVR%20Timetable%202017%20(Preview).pdf

Adults
19.80 or Pre-book 18.80

Seniors (60+)
18.80 or Pre-book 17.30

A simple answer is 2.20 for Seniors, or 1.20 adults for on the day tickets. Certainly a big jump in price for the 60+.

I haven't a timetable handy for 2017 so presume that was correct.

That agrees with archived copies of the website from 2017, sharpo (e.g. link).

When purchasing a single ticket in advance still cost you more than the on the day price with the 1.75 booking fee. Why is the booking fee so high?

I am surprised that there are not many comments about no reduction in any fares for senior citizens...it is not just the FOTL which cost 18.80 last year now 21.00, a rise of roughly 12% but all local fares........apparently there will be a SC discount for special events...........big deal. Shorter journeys i.e HY to AY never had SC discount last year......

Are we trying to alientate the 60+ visitors as sure we will get some adverse comments on this once it is known..............I know costs increase and the SVR has a lot of full time & part time staff who have to be paid but surely one day if fares keep going up and up then more and more visitors will be deterred..
