Go smart. Spend more.

From the Wilts & Dorset webpage about their smartcard product, the key:

Multi-trip – new on m1 & m2 routes

This is a cheaper way of buying single journeys and the more you buy the more you save.Each time you put your key on the reader one journey is deducted.

  • 10 trip – £15 (£18 if you paid for each trip separately)
  • 20 trip – £29 (£36 if you paid for each trip separately)
  • 30 trip – £ 42 (£54 if you paid for each trip separately)

This assumes that each journey is a £1.80 flat fare. On the journey I take, it is £1.40. So, taking their PR, and applying it to my journeys…

  • 10 trip – £15 (£14 if you paid for each journey separately)
  • 20 trip – £29 (£28 if you paid for each journey separately)
  • 30 trip – £42 (£42 if you paid for each journey separately)

So, to go smart on my local operator, I don’t save any money if I buy a multi trip ticket and had I just believed their PR and gone for a 10 or 20 journey multi trip ticket, I’d be spending more.

Go smart. Spend more.
