Bus in Burnham-On-Sea

Bus users in the Burnham-On-Sea area will be able to travel on many routes in Somerset for just £2 from January.

The major fare cut has been announced by Somerset County Council as part of an initiative funded by the Government to boost bus use. It’s also hoped that it will help passengers save money during the cost of living crisis.

The new £2 single fare will be available from six participating operators from 1st January to 31st March as part of the ‘Bus It’ campaign run by Somerset County Council and the Somerset Bus Partnership.

The initiative will apply to the majority of routes in Somerset, including the Burnham-On-Sea, Highbridge, Rooksbridge, Brean and Berrow areas shown below. See the full list below:

Cllr Mike Rigby, Somerset County Council’s Lead Member for Transport and Digital, says: “This new £2 fare is vital to ensure we get more people on buses which will help preserve bus routes in Somerset.”

“This is potentially a real gamechanger in terms of getting people to leave the car at home – a £2 single journey for most routes in Somerset is fantastic value for money when you factor in the cost of fuel and the cost of living crisis.”

“By catching the bus, you can make a difference to the climate, to our environment and save money and wear and tear on your car – it really does make sense to ‘Bus It’.”
