Millions encouraged to Get Around for £2 by bus

Passengers are being encouraged to Get Around for £2 by bus from January to March this
year, with bus operators launching a campaign to promote the government fare cap scheme.

The scheme will help families, commuters and other passengers save money this winter,
backed by £60 million of government investment to cap single tickets at £2 from 1 January to
31 March 2023 across England, outside of London.

With the average single local bus ticket costing £2.80, passengers will save almost a third of
the ticket price per journey. In some rural areas a single ticket can cost over £5.

The scheme seeks to get more commuters on buses and helps to reduce emissions and
congestion by taking an estimated 2 million cars off the roads.
