Single Bus Journeys for £2

The cost of a single bus journey has been capped at £2 on most Stagecoach and Arriva routes has now been extended until the end of June.

The Bus Fare Cap scheme is a Government funded scheme introduced on most single bus journeys across England from the 1st January 2023.

These tickets can be purchased on the bus apps or on board.

For more information please visit the Stagecoach webpage for Canterbury buses or the Arriva webpage for Medway buses.

Discounted staff bus travel- introduction of smart card tickets

We work with Stagecoach bus company to provide discounted bus travel for staff and students. Staff can purchase a Canterbury Megarider ticket or a South East Megarider ticket.

We have recently moved over to smart card tickets for staff, which are similar to the student Unirider tickets. The smart card is loaded up with your ticket and becomes active the first time you use it. Staff with existing paper tickets will be contacted in the next couple of months to upgrade to the smart cards at no extra cost.

The price of the staff bus tickets has slightly increased to reflect increases in Stagecoach tickets. Kent staff still save up to 55% off the public price for the tickets.

Terms and conditions apply. Please see leaflet and salary deduction agreement for more details, or contact the transport team.
