Gainsborough fare changes

There will be changes to fares from 25th April 2022 across East Midlands.


Our fares have remained unchanged for the last three years, and we are committed to keeping our fares as low as possible. But the cost of running buses has risen significantly, even with government funding to keep services running through the pandemic. So we have had to make the decision to review our fares. Some will be increasing but some will also be going down, whilst others will remain the same.
