Another Forum member contacted me to point out:

It's not just the 13% increase in January, the Xtra tickets were also increased in April [2016], which means an increase of almost 18% in nine months.

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire had lots on this – including a contribution from me on the Dotty McLeod breakfast programme – Mon-Fri 06:00-09:00 – a while back. And again on SiC's recent service cutbacks on Tuesday 3 January 2017.

It's a good programme for keeping abreast of local news.

You can listen on 95.7FM and 96FM, 1026AM, DAB, Freeview 722, online at BBC Radio Cambridgeshire and mobile on the iPlayer App free from the iTunes/Google Play stores.

It's a very listener-interactive programme. You can phone 03459 25 2000 (charged, like 01- and 02- numbers at the standard geographic rate) email Dotty McLeod dotty.mcleod@bbc.co.uk tweet to Dotty or text 81333 (starting your text with CAM and adding a name/location at the end).

Edit: adding programme links and contact details.

Incidentally there's lots more on this issue in the topic: Stagecoach East changes from January 2017.
