Eynsham Parish Council would like to remind residents of the cheaper bus fares that are currently available for local travel.
The bus fare cap is part of the Government’s ‘Help for Households’ scheme and sees single bus fares capped at £2 from 1 January until 30 June 2023 (recently extended from end March 2023). This scheme has been adopted by some of our local bus companies, including Arriva, Oxford Bus Company, Redline Buses and Stagecoach.
Exemptions are in place for some routes, including dedicated school services, buses that only run on school days and coach services like the Oxford Tube. More details are available on the Government website.
Now the weather is improving, residents may start to venture further afield and we would encourage you to use the buses while the cheaper fares are in place. After this date, consider taking advantage of the concessionary passes that are available for reduced fares on buses. More details on who is eligible for a bus pass is available on the County Council website.
If any residents have any bus queries or concerns, please email Cllr Tricia Crowley on firstname.lastname@example.org.
