Gloucestershire bus operator, Stagecoach West, is helping commuters and families during the cost of living crisis with a price cap on single fares.
Single journeys on Stagecoach West buses will cost no more than £2 until Friday 31 March 2023 – with any journeys costing less than £2 staying the same price.
Child, student and concessionary tickets are also included in the price cap if the fare usually costs more than £2.
£2 fares are available on most local bus routes across Gloucestershire, including the S2 service direct from Cheltenham to Oxford; the 69 and 20 services from Stroud to Bath; and the 23, 24 and 33 services from Gloucester to the Forest of Dean, with the only exclusions being dedicated school and college services.
The discounted fares are offered as part of the national Bus Fare Cap Grant scheme in England, which is funded by the government.
Customers can buy £2 single tickets on board the bus using cash, contactless, Apple or Google Pay, or on the Stagecoach Bus app.
The price cap runs until Friday 31 March 2023. After this, £2 single tickets will no longer be valid and any tickets which haven't been activated will be automatically refunded.
