Hop on board... £2 single bus fares now available in the borough
Residents and visitors can now save money and 'Get Around for £2', following the launch of a Government scheme to cap fares for single bus journeys.
From now until 31 March 2023, over 130 bus operators will charge no more than £2 for their single tickets across over 4,600 routes nationally, helping families, commuters and other passengers save money.
You can find out which operators and routes are part of the £2 single fare scheme on the Government's website. Please check before you make your journey. Bus operators not taking part in the scheme in Cheshire West and Chester include Aintree Coachline on routes 40, 41 and 272 and M&H Coaches on their route X1.
Please note, journeys starting in Wales are not eligible for the scheme but, if you need to travel by car for some of the way, the Council's Park and Ride services offer £2 return journeys and free parking.
The new bus fare cap, which is part of the Government's Help for Households scheme, can deliver real savings for those most affected by the rising cost of living. As well as saving you money, encouraging bus travel will help reduce carbon emissions by taking an estimated two million cars off the road, nationally.
