King’s Lynn fares to be set at £1.50
Bus fares in King’s Lynn’s ‘Town Zone’ are to be set at a flat price of £1.50.
The flat fare has been made possible by Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP) funding secured by Norfolk County Council. The new fare starts on 21 August and will mean any single journey that starts and finishes within the King’s Lynn town zone will cost just £1.50.
All five bus operators who serve the town have signed up to the scheme: Lynx Bus, WNCT, Stagecoach, First Bus and Coach Services.
This is the second in a series of fares promotions to be announced for Norfolk. Approximately £5.3 million of the funding the county council received has been allocated to fares promotions to make bus travel more affordable across Norfolk over the next three years.
