York Press report:

COUNCIL bosses have been told to reveal how many tickets allowing York bus passengers to travel on different operators’ services have been sold after originally turning down a Freedom of Information (FOI) request.

City of York Council was asked to disclose details of sales of the All York ticket through an FOI request, but the authority said the information was “commercially confidential” and should not be made public.

The Information Commissioners Office has now ruled the overall ticket sales should be disclosed, saying the council had not outlined why this would lead to an individual bus firm’s sales being revealed.
