£2 Single Fare Cap -
Scheme Further Extended to 31 December 2024

There has been a further extension of the £2 single fare capped scheme to 31 December 2024 

Bus users in Somerset will be able to travel on most routes in the county for just £2 from January. The major fare cut is part of an initiative funded by the Government aimed at boosting bus use while helping passengers to save money as the cost of living crisis continues to bite, fuelled in part by high petrol and diesel prices. The £2 single fare is available from all participating operators to 31st December 2024


Somerset Council and the Somerset Bus Partnership have launched the ‘Bus It’ campaign to encourage more people to use bus services at a time when some routes are under threat due to lack of use. It’s hoped the extended £2 fare will provide a continuing boost to patronage and support these aims.

The following bus operators in Somerset are taking part in the £2 fare cap scheme:


  • Bakers Dolphin

  • Community Transport (South West) Ltd

  • FromeBus

  • Libra Travel

  • Mendip Community Transport

  • Somerset County Council   

  • Dartline

  • Faresaver Buses

  • First South West (Buses of Somerset)

  • First West of England

  • Hatch Green Coaches

  • South West Coaches
