All fares frozen in January 2021

All fares frozen in January 2021

We are not putting up any of our bus fares in January. The price of every one of our  tickets and passes will be exactly the same in January 2021 as they are now. Read the press release below: 

National Express Coventry is not putting up any of its bus fares. The price of every one of the company’s tickets will be exactly the same in January 2021 as they are now.

David Bradford, Managing Director of National Express Bus, said:

“We think our customers have been through quite enough change for one year. Keeping our fares as low as we can is the right thing to do.

“Throughout the whole pandemic, National Express has been getting hundreds of thousands of key workers safely to where they need to be. And we are here for our communities when restrictions get lifted and people are ready to travel again.

“Buses are for everyone, and don’t forget, the easiest and cheapest way we can all do our bit to clean up our air and fight climate change is to hop on the bus."

Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street, said:

“This fare freeze will be very welcome news to people right across the West Midlands. With the economic impact of the pandemic putting pressures on so many family finances, it’s excellent news that National Express are holding fares down once again.

“Helping more people to choose affordable public transport is a key part of our transport plan for the region which includes connecting more communities with our Metro expansion, improved stations across the region – and better bus services. And with more and more electric buses now in operation, hopping on a bus is a great way of helping our region achieve ambitious plans to tackle climate change, with cleaner and greener transport. So, it’s great news that fares are being frozen once again.”

National Express has also reduced all child fares on services that run in Warwickshire. So child singles, which were £1.65, are now just £1.20.

The bus company will be publishing its full Christmas timetables on 10th December. But overall headlines are: 

  • Christmas Eve will be a Saturday service with some services running a revised timetable.
  • There are no National Express Coventry buses running on Christmas Day.
  • On Boxing Day, most routes will have an amended daytime service.
  • New Year's Eve will have a Saturday service with some services running a revised timetable.
  • And on New Year’s Day there will be an amended daytime service running.

Normal services run from Saturday 2nd January.
