£2 Single Bus Fares on Nottingham City Transport from January - March 2023

NCT bus users will benefit from reduced single fares between January and March 2023, thanks to a government-funded Help for Households initiative.

The maximum single fare for any journey will be £2 across all NCT services, including on routes through to Loughborough, Southwell and Woodborough.

The standard adult City Area single will reduce from £2.50 to £2.00 and customers who usually buy a £4.70 all-day ticket can pay just £4.00 per day, by changing to paying for a single ticket on both buses they use in a day.

The new fares will be available to buy using:

  • Contactless on the bus – where customers just tap their card or device on the reader and the fares are deducted automatically at the end of the day
  • NCTX Buses app
  • Cash – exact fare required
  • Robin Hood Pay As You Go cards

In the Outer Area, all Adult and Under 19 single fares that are currently over £2 will be charged at the promotional £2 fare.

David Astill, NCT’s Managing Director said, “NCT already offers some of the lowest bus fares in Britain. Even so, we are still missing some of our customers who haven’t returned to travelling by bus post-pandemic and we hope that this attractive fares promotion, funded by the government, will entice those missing people back on board.“

Buses Minister Richard Holden said, “Bus travel remains the most popular form of public transport in England, making up around half of all journeys. That’s why we’re investing £60 million to cap single bus fares at £2 to support every passenger and help get people back on the bus.  With the scheme set to take two million car journeys off the road, it’s fantastic to see so many bus operators signing up to the fare cap, helping people to ‘Get Around for £2’ between the 1st January and 31st March.” 

All single fares that are already lower than £2 and all other tickets, such as day tickets, all Easyrider products and longer-term mobile tickets, remain at their current prices.
