An update from The Campaign for Better Transport includes news that the Government has extended the cap on bus fares for a further three months. That means £2 single fares across England will run into the spring and summer and hopefully tempt many more people to give the bus a try! Click here for a list of all the buses companies taking part in the scheme. It also includes details of companies not taking part in the scheme.
The RAC Foundation keeps track of how transport costs have changed over the years, with a brilliant interactive graph. It’s such a relief to see the cost of bus travel going DOWN after a decade of rocketing fares, thanks to the £2 bus fare cap that CfBT campaigned for! They plan to keep calling for the cap to be extended further, and better marketed so that more people know about it.
