Coventry bus fares to be frozen for 2021

BUS fares in the city will be frozen in January 2021 at the same price they are now.

The announcement was made by National Express Coventry for all of its tickets.

There have already been four years of fares cuts and freezes up to now, including keeping the bus company’s biggest-selling product – the after-9.30am day ticket – costing the same today as it did in 2013.

National Express Bus director David Bradford said: “We think our customers have been through quite enough change for one year.

“Keeping our fares as low as we can is the right thing to do.

“Throughout the whole pandemic, National Express Coventry has been getting hundreds of thousands of key workers safely to where they need to be. “And we are here for our communities when restrictions get lifted and people are ready to travel again.

“Buses are for everyone, and don’t forget, the easiest and cheapest way we can all do our bit to clean up our air and fight climate change is to hop on the bus.”

The move was welcomed by West Midlands Mayor Andy Street.

The full Christmas timetable will be published at from tomorrow.
