On 3 September 2022, the Government announced plans to introduce a £2 bus fare cap on a single bus ticket on most services in England outside London.

This scheme started on 1st January 2023 and will be in place for a period of 3 months until March 2023.

For a full list of the bus companies and routes in the southwest which are included in the £2 cap scheme, CLICK HERE>

(I’ve had a quick look at the list, and the Friday bus service from Peter Tavy to Tavistock, operated by Plymouth Citybus, seems to be included, as is the 118 Tavistock to Okehampton service, which stops on the A386 near the junction with the turning to Peter Tavy (around the “Sugar Factory”) – and the route 1 bus between Tavistock and Plymouth… and many more. Once you’ve got as far as Tavistock bus station, what’s the longest distance you can travel for £2?? Don’t forget you’ll need another £2 to come home, though…)
