Increased cost of diesel...

The local BBC News recently featured LEYTR member, East Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS), who are now said to be considering fare increases following the huge price rise in diesel. The company currently pays an additional £40,000 per week, 48p more per litre than January 2007. Chairman of EYMS, Peter Shipp, commented: "We will have to look at fares. Quite simply we cannot absorb these sorts of costs." Although not being considered, the possibility of cutting services in marginal areas might have to be considered.
