In a new effort to increase use of bus transport and reduce pollution and congestion, Arriva have launched a new £1.50 single bus fare for travel in the Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells area after 7pm.
The fare is an extension of a successful trial by Arriva in Maidstone, where the cheaper evening fare increased passenger numbers. The fare begins today (Sunday 29 April).
Oliver Monahan (pictured below) said: “This is just the latest in our sustained and continuing programme of improvements for our customers in west Kent and efforts to attract more people to our network of buses”.
Mr Monahan continued: “This allows that visit to family and friends, drinks after work or late night shopping.” Full details are on the Arriva app or at www.arrivabus.co.uk.
