Using our roads better - making it easier for people to afford buses
The government is investing £60 million to cap bus fares outside London at £2 and launching the "Get Around for £2" bus scheme, cutting fares for most bus travellers by a third.
- Buses are the most popular form of public transport in England, making up half of all journeys – and we are committed to making sure they remain accessible to everyone.
- That is why this week the government is launching the Get Around for £2 bus scheme, investing £60 million to cap single bus fares outside of London at £2 from 1 January to 31 March 2023 – a third less than the average local bus ticket of £2.80.
- By making sure that customers are paying a fair price for bus journeys, we will take two million car journeys off the road and save money for families, students and commuters.
