Until further notice, most single bus journeys will cost a maximum of £2.00 single.
This is a UK Government funded scheme as part of their ‘Help for Households’ package of measures to help with the cost of living pressures and will run from 1 January 2023 until further notice.

Where can I use the £2.00 fare scheme?
This ticket will be available on all our bus routes in all the areas we serve, except for the school services listed below.
Which services are exempt from the £2.00 fare scheme?
Many school services are exempt from this scheme as they are not being funded – these include services 43, 45, 107, 428, 492, 493, 625, 662, 740, 743 and all dedicated services to Brinsbury College.
How do I get my £2.00 single journey ticket?
This fare is available as normal from the driver, the ticket machine will automatically cap the fare at a maximum of £2.00 single.
If your single fare is less than £2.00, then it will remain the same price. This fare cap means that most return tickets will not be required.
Can I still buy return, weekly and termly tickets?
These tickets will still be available to buy, but it maybe that it is cheaper for you to buy a £2.00 single each way instead.
Please check your fare before you travel with our office or the driver, we are unable to refund fares after purchase.
I have a concessionary pass, so what does that mean for me?
Concessionary passes are still valid for use within the current conditions, and this scheme will not change that.
However, it does now mean that you can travel in the morning peak for a maximum fare of £2.00 per single journey until further notice.
