Bus fares are set to be reviewed, according to the manager of Jersey's new service.

Kevin Hart said the £1.70 maximum fare would not change when CT Plus Jersey takes over from Connex on 2 January, but it would be reviewed later.

He said fares may rise but the firm was also introducing a smart card system that would offer discounted rates.

New buses have been arriving in the island ahead of CT Plus taking over.

Mr Hart said: "You may see the cash fare rise.

"But with the multi-deals that we will do on the smart cards as we progress through the year the people of the island will see a huge benefit."
