Coventry's £2 bus fare cap extended into new year

Coventry Editorial 26th Dec, 2023   0

CITY bus users have received an early Christmas present as National Express Coventry has confirmed it will continue the government’s £2 single fare cap scheme until the end of 2024.

The Government scheme was first launched in January and has seen 12.5million National Express bus passenger journeys made in the West Midlands using the single fare offer.

Anybody making three or more journeys a day will be able to use the £4.50 day saver tickets from next year, the firm has also confirmed.

Alex Jensen, CEO for National Express UK, Ireland and Germany said: “Bus is by far the most popular form of public transport here in Coventry and the wider West Midlands, so we are pleased to be working with Transport for West Midlands and the Department for Transport to extend the £2 single ticket until the end of 2024.

“More people using buses is good for the economy, good for the environment and good for wider society.”
