Bus Fare Cap
Millions of people can access affordable bus travel this year, thanks to the Government’s fare cap encouraging passengers to ‘Get Around for £2’.
This is a great opportunity to get out and about for less and let the bus take the worry out of travel and parking problem. This scheme has been extended until 31st December 2024.
Bus operators continue to offer the cap from right up to winter 2024, backed by Government funding, offering a saving of 30% on the average single fare of £2.80.
This fantastic scheme will continue to apply to all York Pullman local bus services for the duration of the scheme, meaning in many cases it is now easier AND cheaper to travel by bus than to travel by car!.
The scheme encourages people to swap their cars for bus journeys, helping families save money during cost-of-living pressures, while also reducing carbon emissions by taking 2 million cars off the road and encouraging greater bus use to help the industry in its continued recovery from the pandemic.
