We are delighted to announce that in conjunction with the Government’s “Help for Households” program we will be offering cheaper fares for everybody, capped at £2 on all single fare bus journeys.
The Bus Fare Cap Grant scheme is a Government funded scheme being introduced on all our single (including Child and Student) bus journeys from...
1st January 2023 until 30th June 2023.
The offer is funded through a £60 million scheme under the Government’s “Help for Households” program to help the public with cost of living pressures over the winter. This offer will end on June 30th and will help millions of passengers with travel costs for work, education, and essential journeys.
For instance the current single fare on route 409 between Selsdon and East Grinstead is £5.60 this will be reduced during this period to £2 making a £3.60 Saving.
Buses Minister Richard Holden said: “Bus travel remains the most popular form of public transport in England, making up around half of all journeys. That’s why we’re investing £60 million to cap single bus fares at £2 to support every passenger and help get people back on the bus.
“With the scheme set to take two million car journeys off the road, it’s fantastic to see so many bus operators signing up to the fare cap, helping people to ‘Get Around for £2’ between the 1st January and 30th June 2023.”
