A bus company caps bus travel ticket prices to ease pressure on the cost of living.
All adult single tickets for Brighton and Hove Buses are £2 from 1st January to 31st March.
The offer is being funded by a £60million government scheme called ‘Household Aid’ to ease the pressure on winter living costs.
That means all journeys, including the 33-mile route between Brighton and Tunbridge Wells, will cost £2 instead of £6.20.
Nick Hill, Commercial Director at Brighton and Hove Buses, said: “With the cost of living pressures on everyone’s mind, we are delighted to be able to offer capped fares to our passengers this winter.”
“The program will allow passengers to travel further than ever before for £2, allowing everyone to enjoy a little more freedom when using our services.”
On routes where round-trip fares are available, these are reduced to a maximum of £4.
The upper limit also applies to child fares.
The program aims to take two million car journeys off the road.
Government Bus Minister Richard Holden said: “Bus travel remains the most popular form of public transport in England, accounting for around half of all journeys. That’s why we’re investing £60m to cap individual bus fares to £2 to support every passenger and get people back on the bus.
“With the program set to take two million car journeys off the road, it’s fantastic to see so many bus companies signing up for the fare cap and helping people get around for £2 between 1st January and 31st March.”
The South East companies also participating in the offer are Stagecoach South, Stagecoach South East, Metrobus, Cuckmere Community Bus, Compass Travel (Sussex) Ltd and Big Lemon Buses.
