When the going gets tough… get going by Transdev Bus for only £2!
From today, Yorkshire bus firm’s customers pay just £2 for any single journey until March – thanks to Government funded Help for Households scheme
As the cost of living crisis continues, thousands of customers travelling on Yorkshire bus firm Transdev’s entire network can travel for up to 87 per cent less as a Government-funded Help for Household scheme begins today (Monday 2 January 2023).
The maximum single fare for any Transdev one-way bus journey has now been cut to just £2 – including the marathon 84-mile journey from Leeds to Whitby, voted Britain’s Most Scenic Bus Route in a national poll of bus users, which will now be 87 per cent cheaper.
Every day from now until the end of March, the bargain £2 single fare is instantly available anytime, anywhere and on any day from bus drivers using cash or contactless payment, and on the bus operator’s free-to-download Transdev Go mobile app.
The promotion will deliver huge savings for customers making journeys across the Transdev network. More Yorkshire examples include:
· Leeds to Scarborough by Coastliner, distance 74 miles: was £15, now £2, saving 87 per cent
· Ripon to Leeds on The 36, distance 29 miles: was £7.50, now £2, saving 73 per cent
· Harrogate to Bradford on FLYER A2, distance 22 miles: was £5.40, now £2, saving 63 per cent
· Keighley to Skipton on Dalesway, distance 11 miles: was £3.70, now £2, saving 46 per cent.
Fares for journeys wholly within West Yorkshire, which have already been reduced to £2 with support from Mayor Tracy Brabin, will continue to be available as normal.
Transdev CEO Alex Hornby said: “We are delighted to be able to offer this amazing promotion to our customers throughout Yorkshire and into Lancashire and Greater Manchester, thanks to our continued partnership with industry partners and UK Government.
“In 2022 we were among the most successful operators in the country in our mission to attract customers back to bus post-pandemic. Yet we know there are still some who have not returned to our routes, and especially as the cost of living crisis continues into this New Year, we hope this money-saving promotion will attract them back on board.”
Buses Minister Richard Holden MP said: “Brits love buses. They’re the most popular form of public transport in England, making up half of all journeys. So, we’re investing £60 million to cap single bus fares at £2 to help families, students and commuters and help get people back on the bus.
“The scheme will also take two million car journeys off the road, and it’s fantastic to see bus operators including Transdev signed up. So, wherever you’re going, make sure you hop on the bus and get around for £2 until 31 March.”
All Transdev single fares which are already lower than £2, and all other day and longer-term tickets will remain at their current prices.
