Fares increase on specific Essex County Council supported services from Monday 1st April 2024

From Monday 1st April 2024, the fares of those bus services operated under Essex County Council’s 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 until Tuesday 31st December 2024 for bus operators that are currently taking part.

Please note that concessionary bus pass holders and Park and Ride users will not be affected by this change.

Kind Regards, 

Integrated Passenger Transport Unit
