Diamond Bus are pleased to announce that we will be continuing to take part in the Government funded £2 Fare Cap Scheme after 31st October.

This means that single bus fares on eligible services will continue to be no more than £2 per trip!

Whether your use the bus for work, shopping or leisure, you can continue to make a single journey on the majority* of Diamond services, and not pay more than £2. 

Extra services added to a West Midlands Scheme!
A number of services which were previously not eligible have now been added to the £2 Fare Cap Scheme, so you can now benefit from lower Single fares on these routes too!

Don’t worry if your single fare is usualy less than £2, it will stay the same price! You can buy our new £2 single ticket on board from your friendly driver using cash, contactless payment or Apple/Google Pay. It’s that simple!

If you are a regular traveller, intend to make a number of journeys during your day or are travelling in a family/group, you may find that our range of day, week & month tickets offer even greater value. Visit our tickets pages for more information on our full ticket range.
