Learnt today that Marchants are no longer using the paper ticket system but coming into line with the other bus companies. It will be a lot more expensive this way sadly as a non-used trips will now have to be paid for
Also annual fare is approx £150 more it seems. My DD also has to take a new convoluted route - heading away from Pate's at the start of the day and will add about 20 mins to her journey each way - and we are only in Charlton Kings! Seems very counter intuitive, but unless we resort to doing the school run (not really feasible with work and younger DS's in primary school still) I guess we will have to bite the bullet.
