Did you know that there’s a new government scheme to encourage people to travel more by bus and support the cost of living / travel? Millions encouraged to Get Around for £2 by bus – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
- millions of people across England will be able to travel by bus for £2 from 1 January to 31 March 2023, thanks to £60 million in government funding to cap single tickets
- people can save almost a third of the average £2.80 bus fare, while in some rural areas tickets can reach over £5 for a single journey
- over 130 bus operators outside London will be part of the scheme, taking an estimated 2 million cars off the road and reducing emissions
Bus routes are a great way to travel to reduce carbon (and financial) cost per journey, especially with the increasing number of electric vehicles being added to their fleets.
