Stagecoach is extending its offer of a maximum fare of £2 for a single bus journey in England until the end of June 2024.

The offer, part of the National Bus Fare Cap scheme, has been extended following its launch in January 2023.

The £2 offer, part of the Government’s Help for Households campaign, has helped bus customers save money and also boosted local economies and communities.

They’ve reported that 23% of £2 single ticket customers said they were making trips they wouldn’t otherwise have made and some had switched some journeys from private vehicles to the bus, taking cars off the road, ‘helping to reduce congestion and improve air quality’.

Claire Miles, Chief Executive Officer for Stagecoach said:

“We are delighted to continue our participation in the £2 fare offer until at least the end of June 2024, giving more people the chance to see where the bus can take them.

“Around 10 million people in England live within walking distance of one of our bus stops, so we’re hoping that people will take the opportunity to get out of their cars and give the bus a try for the bargain price of just £2 for a single ticket.” 

Stagecoach bus tickets can either be bought on the Stagecoach Bus App in advance of travel, or on the bus using contactless payment including Apple and Google Pay, or using cash.
