WEST YORKSHIRE ROAD CAR COMPANY LIMITED FARES POLICY ON CERTAIN ROUTES BETWEEN BRADFORD AND SKIPTON
This investigation is concerned with the fares charged by West Yorkshire road car Ltd (wyrc) on certain sections of its services between bradford in West Yorkshire and skipton in North Yorkshire. It follows an allegation by pinnacle coaches (pinnacle), a small local bus operator, that wyrc had been charging uneconomically low fares on its routes between cross hills and skipton in North Yorkshire. In particular, it was alleged that wyrc's introduction on 23 March 1987, the day when pinnacle entered the market, of free return travel for passengers travelling from the villages of bradley lane end, cononley, kildwick and cross hills to skipton was anti-competitive. The investigation has been undertaken during a period of substantial change in the bus industry following the deregulation of local bus services in the transport act 1985 (discussed in more detail at annex a).
