In a move designed to make things easier for bus users in Plymouth, First Devon and Cornwall is introducing a special 14 journey ticket for customers using Service 12 (City Centre - Chaddlewood), which will both cut costs for regular travellers and allow those who only use the bus occasionally to also benefit from savings over the price of standard walk on fares.

The ticket, which will be available to buy from the driver, cuts the price of a journey anywhere on the ugobus service 12 route (Chaddlewood - Ridegway - Marsh Mills - City Centre) to just £1; offering a saving of 50% on the current maximum single fare of £2.

And between 30 May and 12 June, First Devon and Cornwall will be selling the 14 journey tickets at a discounted rate, meaning customers will be able to cut their travel costs even more, spending just 50 pence on each journey " saving up to 75% on the current maximum fare.

The initiative, which follows a recent price promotion in Ernesettle which cut end to end fares on Service 13 to just £1.60 for singles, and £2.40 for returns, comes on top of a promise to allow all customers using ugo service 1/1A (City Centre " St Budeuax " Saltash/Latchbrook) ugobus service 12 (Chaddlewood " Ridegway " Marsh Mills " City Centre), and the PR1 George/Milehouse and PR2 Coypool Park & Ride services in Plymouth to travel for free if their bus is not super low floor and easily accessible vehicle.

The 14 journey ticket will have a shelf life of three months from the date of purchase, meaning even the most irregular travel can benefit from the significant savings it offers. The 14 journey ticket can be used for journeys anywhere on ugobus service 12 whether from Chaddlewood Shops to the City Centre or from Sainsburys at Marsh Mills to Ridgeway.

Marc Reddy, Managing Director of First Devon and Cornwall, says: "We already sell a number of great value tickets, which can offer bus users unlimited travel for as little as £1.28 a day in Plymouth, and this new 14 journey ticket on ugobus service 12 compliments those, offering people " including those who only travel occasionally - another way to save money. We hope customers will make the most of the savings that this new ticket offers them, giving their local First service a go.'
