Local MP Rebecca Pow said:
"The Governments’ recent announcement that the £2 bus fare scheme has been extended nationally until December 2024 is extremely welcome and is helping many residents. Do support your local bus service where possible to make the most of it. The list of bus companies and bus routes included in the £2 bus fare cap scheme is online but if you need any information relating to this do get in touch; similarly if you are experiencing any problems with some of the recent changes to some bus routes do let me know."
Transport Secretary, Mark Harper, said:
"Buses are the most popular form of public transport, which is why we are continuing to back our buses with record high levels of funding – supporting vital bus services and offering affordable travel for passengers.
This increase in funding to deliver more reliable, frequent and affordable local bus services – and to extend the £2 bus fare cap – has only been possible with the redirected HS2 funding secured by this government making the right long-term decisions for a brighter future."
