Cut-price bus travel is on the way for five to 19-year-olds in the Swaffham areas as part of a countywide campaign to persuade more people to us the bus.
Passengers of that age who want to travel in the flexibus+ zone will be able to travel for £1.50 for two trips until September 3 as long as they book on the flexibus+ app.
The service covers 85 square miles concentrated on the Swaffham area and is funded by the Government, Norfolk County Council, and Vectare transport solutions.
Fabian Eagle, County Councillor for the Brecks division, said: “I’m thrilled that the flexibus+ service has been such a success in my local area – providing people with a great flexible transport solution. Since its launch in March almost 2000 journeys have been made on the flexibus+ and by offering this discount throughout the summer we hope to encourage more young people to use the service.
“My children and nephew have already used the service many times and i’m sure they will take full advantage of this offer throughout the summer. It’s a great way for them travel to see friends who live in nearby villages or to get to Swaffham for a day in town or to catch connecting buses to King’s Lynn or Norwich.”
