CAMRA raises a pint to £2 bus fare extension

The Campaign for Real Ale has welcomed the decision to extend cheaper bus fares until June to help people get to and from their local

Commenting on the Department for Transport’s decision to extend the capped £2 single journey bus fare in England until June, CAMRA Chairman Nik Antona said:

“Cheaper bus fares are great news for the beer and pub trade, making it affordable for people to go out to visit their locals.

“Extending the £2 bus fare scheme for England is something that we had called on Transport ministers to do so that pubs, social clubs, breweries and cider producers grappling with the cost-of-business crisis can benefit from people being able to get to the pub in an affordable and environmentally friendly way.

“We’ll be raising a glass to this decision and we look forward to meeting with Buses Minister Richard Holden MP in his North West Durham constituency soon to show how the £2 bus fare can benefit pubgoers and hospitality businesses alike.”
