£2 single journey initiative extended once again!

We're thrilled to announce that Swindon Bus customers will continue to be able to travel on any single journey in-and-around the town for £2.  

We signed up to the Department for Transport (DfT) initiative - which restricts the cost of a single ticket - at the beginning of the year. An essential part of the Government’s Help for Households scheme, the fare cap was originally set to end on 31 October 2023 but has now been extended.  

We expect the cap to continue until at least 30 June 2024, and this will allow us to carry on providing low-cost bus travel. It will also help to protect many routes relied upon by local people.  

Our aim is for people to change their travel habits, so they opt for the bus and other sustainable methods. One fully-loaded double decker bus has the potential to take up to 75 cars off the road, this is an excellent opportunity to reduce congestion in-and-around Swindon.

Don't forget, it's never been easier to pay for your journey, all Swindon's Bus Company buses accept cash, contactless payments and tap on tap off.
