£2 bus fare extension good news for pubs: CAMRA
Government’s decision to extend cheaper bus fares in England will help keep pub-going affordable
Speaking after the Department for Transport announced an extension to the capped £2 single journey bus fare in England until the end of October, CAMRA Chairman Nik Antona commented:
“£2 bus fares have helped to make getting to and from the pub more affordable. At a time when the beer and pub trade needs as much support as it can get, the decision to extend the cheap fares scheme until the end of October is undoubtedly good news.
“Our local pubs, social clubs, breweries and cider producers are vital parts of community life up and down the country. That’s why CAMRA’s Summer of Pub campaign is encouraging as many people as possible to head down to their local this summer to enjoy the community spirit that only a pint of real ale or cider down the pub can bring.
“We hope that the extended £2 bus fare scheme will help more people to support their locals over the next few months in an affordable and environmentally friendly way.”
