The first three months were such a huge success, as Roads and Local Transport Minister in Department for Transport, Richard has been able to extend this for another three months but when it's over, it's going to be over. So hop on before June 30th for a £2 single fare cap on any single bus journey. It has had such a positive impact it's already so make the most of it over Easter and hop on board!
All of our local bus companies are taking part: Weardale Motor Services Ltd Go North East & Arriva North East
As we all know from our regular public meetings with bus companies, our buses have had a tough time recently and usage has been slow to recover - but do get on board whether you've a concessionary fare or if you're not the £2 cap is there for you! Perfect if you're on a night out this evening.
So, get back on our buses! All our local operators are taking part - even on the long routes
- 4,600 routes
- Across the country over 130 operators & 95%+ journeys covered
And it covers some long town-town routes that are normally £5+!
Richard hopes to see you on the bus soon!
