Diamond Bus are pleased to announce that will will be continuing to take part in the Government funded* £2 Fare Cap Scheme.
This means that single bus fares on eligible services will continue to be no more than £2 per trip until October 2023.
Summer is here and school holidays are on the horizon...
There are some great places to visit and a wealth of things to see and do across all the Diamond Bus regions and with our new £2 single fare price, it’s a great time to get out and explore your area by bus.
You can now make a single journey on the majority of Diamond services, and never pay more than £2* . 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.
