£2 cap on single bus fares from January to March


Gedling borough residents will be able to pay less to get around by bus between January and March next year after the Government capped single journey bus fares at £2.

From Jan 1 to March 31, a single bus journey will cost no more than £2 across Nottinghamshire where operators will be adopting the scheme.

Councillor Neil Clarke MBE, Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment, said: “This is excellent news for bus passengers in Nottinghamshire and I welcome this Government initiative.

“Though this scheme is short-term, we hope that as many Nottinghamshire residents as possible will take advantage of it.

“Travelling by bus remains popular, but we have not yet seen the return to passenger numbers that we had before the pandemic.

“It is our hope that whether it is for commuting, travelling for leisure or anything in between, that Nottinghamshire people will see the benefits of this scheme in the New Year.

For more information about how this scheme is running with local bus operators, please visit operator websites.
