Bus Fares £2 or less

Bus Fares £2 or less

Millions of people can access affordable bus travel this winter, thanks to the Government’s fare cap encouraging passengers to ‘Get Around for £2’.

Bus operators in Devon will introduce the cap from 1st January to 31st March 2023.  The scheme is backed by Government funding, and offers a saving of 30% on the average single fare.  We hope the scheme will encourage people to swap their cars for bus journeys, helping families save money during cost of living pressures, while also reducing carbon emissions by taking cars off the road.  Encouraging greater bus use to help the industry in its continued recovery from the pandemic.

We are pleased that all bus companies operating commercial and supported bus services in Devon have agreed to participate in the scheme.  Full details of all eligible services can be found on the DFT website. (Please note this webpage is constantly being updated – we can confirm that at the time of publishing this webpage, and in addition to the published list, Taw & Torridge will also be participating).

Should you have any questions regarding the scheme please contact us
