After their spoof of the local paper was so well received the people behind the Yorkshire Evening Pest have responded to yet another rise in the fares on First buses by producing stickers which helpfully inform passengers of both the rise in prices and what the company really thinks of them.
“From the 26th April there will be some changes to most fares on First services in West Yorkshire.
We appreciate fare rises are never popular, especially at a time when the economic crisis is causing deflation and our costs are actually falling. But, really, what are you going to do about it?
Leeds: Like it, Lump it?”
Lets hope this is just an opening salvo which sparks a more sustained attack against rising fares. At a time of hardship a rise in fares is immoral. At a time of climate crisis, a rise in fares is insane. Well we are mad as hell and we ain’t gonna take it anymore.
Fare strike anyone?
