You can get around for a pound for longer – after Yorkshire bus operator Transdev extended its evening fare deal.
The £1 flat fare for any single journey after 7pm was launched last year to encourage more people back onto the buses.
Now Transdev is extending the deal through till March.
Transdev says the £1 evening fare deal helped it attract more customers back to its buses, with numbers on board during 2021 reaching 85 per cent of pre-pandemic levels – having plummeted to just five per cent at the peak of the first lockdown in March 2020.
And now as the region’s leisure and entertainment venues begin their New Year fightback from the impact of the Omicron variant, the super-low evening fare will continue to be available for any journey on Transdev buses for the first three months of 2022.
The bargain £1 flat fare is available until 31 March 2022 at any time after 7pm on any Transdev bus in Yorkshire and over the Pennines into Lancashire for any single journey, regardless of the distance travelled.
Many of Transdev’s interurban services operate until late evening, seven days a week. Longer Yorkshire journeys available with the £1 after 7pm fare deal include:
- Leeds to and from York and Malton, with Coastliner
- Ripon or Harrogate to and from Leeds, on The 36 from The Harrogate Bus Company.
