The Group says that ticket sales have reached 60 million across its eight regional bus networks. Its Brighton & Hove Buses and Metrobus subsidiaries were the biggest carriers of passengers under the scheme, the Group says, having carried more than 15 million passengers at the £2 fare. Longer routes have proven particularly popular under the scheme, the company says, with journeys on routes such as the Metrobus 270-273 which collectively run from Crawley and East Grinstead to Brighton showing a 30% increase in passenger numbers, whilst Carousel Buses’ route 102 from High Wycombe to Heathrow Airport produced a 40% rise in customers.

That’s great news – it shows that the bus fare cap has encouraged our regular customers to get out and about more frequently, and it’s attracted new passengers onto our buses. Longer bus services between towns and villages are proving particularly popular at £2. The success of this scheme is a reminder of just how important buses are in connecting communities and helping people to access vital local services.”

It is clear getting around for £2 has got people back on our buses, better connecting our communities, supporting the economy across the country and giving people the freedom to travel and save some cash while they do.”
