Brighton & Hove Buses will be offering cheaper fares to local residents, capped at £2 on all single fare bus journeys. The offer is funded through a £60 million scheme under the UK Government’s Help for Households programme to help the public with cost of living pressures over the winter.
This means that passengers can expect to make big savings from longer bus routes. For example, the Regency Route between Brighton and Tunbridge Wells, usually £6.20 (33 miles), and the 5 route between Hangleton and Brighton, usually £2.80 (4.3 miles), will be capped at £2.
According to Brighton & Hove Buses, the initiative, which ends on March 31, will help millions of passengers with travel costs for work, education, and essential journeys.
Nick Hill, Commercial Director at Brighton & Hove Buses, said: “With the cost of living pressures on everyone’s mind, we are thrilled to be able to offer our passengers capped fares this winter.
“The scheme will enable passengers to go further than ever for £2, so everyone can enjoy a little more freedom when using our services.”
The £2 fare cap runs from January 1 to March 31.
