  • The cost of a monthly unlimited pass will go up by £2 to £22 .
  • Short term passes will see a £2 increase.
  • The Route 91/92 services will be relocated to Stand H at the Town Terminus.
  • The operation of an enhanced 'Island Tour' public excursion service by Island Coachways.

A new £5 'Around Island' fare is being introduced for passengers using the Route 91/92 and will apply for any journey starting or finishing in St Peter Port.
