Go off the rails - Coastliner prices are FROZEN!

7 months ago Tue 31st Dec 2019

It’s now even better value to ride Coastliner between York, Malton & Scarborough in 2020, as rail prices rise once again. At just £38, a week’s unlimited travel on Coastliner is a whopping £40 per week cheaper than taking the train between York and Scarborough. It’s better value over the shorter distances too at over £8 cheaper than the train between York and Malton and nearly £3 cheaper between Malton and Scarborough.

And it’s much better value even than that! The £38 ticket can be used on all Transdev buses across the North, including the popular Cityzap between Leeds and York, the 36 every 10 minutes from Leeds to Harrogate, as well as into West Yorkshire and across the pennines into Lancashire.

There’s a bus between York and Malton every 30 minutes on Coastliner, and onto Scarborough every hour.  

Coastliner’s General Manager Ben Mansfield said: “Many of those who travel regularly with us on Coastliner between York, Malton and Scarborough have already switched to us from the train, and they tell us our frequent service, high quality and great value for money are the reasons why.  

“Our Coastliner buses are packed with customer-friendly features, including free superfast 4G Wi-Fi, USB power points at every seat, plush coach-style seats upstairs, tables for groups and a chill-out area on the lower deck. Our friendly drivers can also give on-the-spot advice to make sure new passengers get the best ticket for their journey.

“As just £38 per week it’s great value and our price freeze sets an even stronger difference against using the train. With all the added benefits of unlimited travel on any of our buses, the ticket for a ride to work can take you on days out into the city and trips to the coast.”

In an industry-leading first all Coastliner’s buses have contactless capping for customers who Tap&Cap. This means for the first time ever, the weekly ticket can be paid for by contactless card even though it’s above the £30 limit. Customers just need to tap their contactless card, smartphone or smart watch onto the reader as they get on and off the bus and their weekly costs will automatically be capped at £38.

All other ticket prices are frozen too, on local buses in and around York, Leeds and further afield. A week’s travel within York is just £24.50 and within Leeds is just £18.
