You heard it! Our bus fares are NOT going up in the new year. Again!
Chris Gibbens, our Commercial Director said:
“Although the price of everything seems to be going up at the moment - crisps, fizzy pop, even cat food - bus fares in the West Midlands are not. We have frozen National Express West Midlands ticket prices - and we’ve even reduced some of them.”
“The last time our bus tickets were this cheap - £4 for a day saver - it was 2014. Back then, TikTok was what clocks did; we only wore masks at Halloween; and it was also the year Conchita won Eurovision.”
Flexible ticket bundles of 10 day savers have been reduced to £34, which is perfect for people who don’t quite know which days they’ll be going into work in January.
And for anyone whose New Year’s resolution is to do a bit more to save the planet, remember that getting the bus - even for the odd journey - is the easiest and cheapest way to keep our air clean and reduce the greenhouse gases you’re responsible for. A five-mile trip on a bus puts out half the carbon than if you go by car.
