How far can you go for £2?

Most bus companies throughout England have capped single fares at £2 until the end of June 2023. This is part of a government incentive to encourage more people to use the bus and support households during these challenging times.

The £2 single fare applies to peak and off peak standard travel so you could take advantage of this offer to travel into uni or to enjoy pleasure trips at the weekend.

This will be particularly useful during the planned rail strikes later this week (Wednesday 1st and Friday 3rd Feb)

Brighton and Hove Buses are taking part in the scheme so you can head out to Tunbridge Wells, Devils Dyke, Lewes, Seaford, Cuckmere or Eastbourne – all for £2 one way. Even if you just use the bus more locally, a trip out to Mile Oak, Dyke Road, Ovingdean or Steyning will get you on on the Downs in no time.

Metrobus is also taking part, so if you fancy a day our further afield to East Grinstead or Haywards Heath or even Crawley get comfy, take a pack up lunch and away you go.

For those of you based in or around Eastbourne, East or West Sussex, Stagecoach are taking part and most companies are using this opportunity to promote the more rural and obscure routes you might not even know about.

The days are getting (slightly) longer, the air is getting (marginally) milder so embrace the fresh Spring air (after a long bus journey!)

Happy travels
