The ‘Get Around for £2’ single fare cap has been extended for all High Peak Buses routes until the end of December 2024. Thousands of routes across England are continuing to take part in the money saving initiative.
It could save passengers a third off the cost of a ticket on average, according to the Department for Transport (DfT), who launched the scheme.
The flat rate cap only applies to single journeys – one trip, on one bus – at any time of day. Return and multi-bus journeys and daily or weekly tickets continue to be charged at their usual price, so check if it may be cheaper to buy single tickets instead. The cap only applies to bus routes, not to coach fares.
Over 5,000 routes in England are currently capped under the scheme. For the full list, check the Gov.uk website. The Department for Transport says this list will be updated on 1 November with the operators taking part from then.
New Buxton Buzz cross town service is launched
The 185 and 186 have combined to form a cross-Buxton bus service, running between 8am and 7pm, that links Fairfield with Buxton town centre and Harpur Hill, also serving the new housing developments along the A515. Hop on board and see what all the buzz is about!
All High Peak Buses routes continue to take part in the scheme
Whether you’re heading to work or popping into town, or, going for a day out, a single bus journey will cost no more than £2. All High Peak Buses (owned by Centrebus) routes are taking part in the scheme:
113, 114, 14, 14A, 185, 186, 190, 199, 389, 390, 393, 394, 440, 441, 442, 58, 60, 60A, 61, 76, 77, TP2, TP3
You can buy your £2 single ticket on board with cash or your contactless card or mobile device. Day, Week and Month tickets will still be available to purchase on the bus or via the Centrebus App, but it may be cheaper to purchase a £2 single each time you travel, for the duration of the scheme.

My ticket costs less than £2 already, will I pay more?
If your journey already costs less than £2, this will remain unchanged and you will pay the lower fare.
I normally buy a Week or Month ticket, will this be capped?
No, the Government scheme is against Single Fares only. Week and Month tickets will still be available, but you will need to compare costs, as it may be cheaper to buy a £2 single fare each time you travel, depending on how many trips you make.
Is there any High Peak Service not included in the £2 fare?
No, all Centrebus services will be included.
