Public Transport Pricing

Thirdly, I think there needs to be a reduction in the bus fayres. As I'm sure you are all aware, in midlothian and Edinburgh a fayre costs £1.50 from newtongrange right into edinburgh and all around that area. Please see below for the imprtance. 

Why the contribution is important

The public transport issue is important because even though I understand it is a much busier flow of public commuters in the likes of edinburgh etc, the prices continue to fluxuate in the borders towns for buses and its not a ideal for anyone. The simple answer is to reduce the bus ride costs to say £2 for every route and £5-8 day ticket for those who are traveling to 2 or more destinations in the one day. This will increase the popularity of passengers as they will get more for less and in turn word spreads and more people become happy to get around by bus.
