Fares increase on specific Essex County Council supported services

18 Mar 24

From Monday 1st April 2024, the fares of all our current Gross Cost contracts (which are listed in the attached table below titled ‘1st April 2024 Gross Cost Contracts’) are increasing in line with our Fees and Charges Policy which will be a 4.1% increase rounded to the nearest 10p. The reason for the rounding is so the fares are not sums like £3.14 which would cause more difficulty for passengers and bus drivers.

The Department for Transport’s (DfT) £2 single fare cap scheme remains in place currently for bus operators that are taking part. Please note that concessionary bus pass holders and Park and Ride users will not be affected by this change.
