Bus fares in Birmingham since de-regulation

owen made this Freedom of Information request to West Midlands Combined Authority

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear West Midlands Combined Authority,

Under your remit of Transport for West Midlands, can you please supply cost information about bus fares. The information required is the adult single fare in Birmingham for every year since 1985 (the year before bus de-regulation).
I understand that the main operator has now become a private company in the form of National Express, but given your role in providing subsidy on some routes to operators I would expect yourselves to retain information about the costs charged to customers on services subsidised by yourselves.

Yours faithfully,
Mr O'Neill

Dear Fazila Nawaz,

Thankyou very much for your response - do you know which public body might hold the information for the period 1985 - 2002 ?

Yours sincerely,
