Capping Bus fares, and providing funding to protect Bus services in North Yorkshire


Yesterday the government announced the extension of the £2 bus fare cap, helping passengers save money on fares while supporting vulnerable bus routes – helping to grow the economy and providing immediate relief for people with the cost of living. 

  • Taking the bus is the most popular form of public transport and many people rely on buses to get them to work or to take their children to school. 
  • That is why millions of passengers across England will continue to ‘Get Around for £2’ with the government providing £200 million to continue capping single bus fares until the end of October 2023. £300 million has also been confirmed to protect vital routes and improve services until 2025.
  • This will make sure bus travel remains accessible and affordable for everyone to ease cost of living pressures whilst also delivering on the Conservative priority to grow the economy.
