Region Västra Götaland’s Public Transport Committee has decided that Västtrafik’s ticket prices are to increase by 2.5 per cent on average and that bicycles are to be carried on board at no extra charge. The price of a single ticket is rising by around 3 per cent. Period ticket prices are increasing by around 2 per cent.
Why prices are rising
The costs of operating public transport are increasing, in terms of both new vehicles and staff. We want to develop public transport and improve the service we offer. In 2018, we will be investing in more frequent services, new lines and upgrading stops, for example.
Bicycles on board free of charge
From 7 January, there will be no extra charge for bringing your bicycle on board. This applies to lines where bicycles are allowed on board.
