Nottinghamshire residents can pay less to get around by bus until the end of June, thanks to the extension of the Government’s £2 bus fare cap.
Until Friday 30th June, a single bus journey will cost no more than £2 on most routes across England, including in Nottinghamshire where operators will be adopting the scheme.
The fare cap is part of the Government’s Help for Households scheme aimed at tackling the cost of living across the country.
Passengers travelling on services across Nottinghamshire, including those operated by Nottinghamshire County Council, will be able to benefit from the cap and get around for £2.
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’s our hope that whether it’s for commuting, travelling for leisure or anything in between, that Nottinghamshire people will see the benefits of this scheme.
