Arriva reducing bus fares across Medway, Maidstone and Swale

Arriva is cutting prices of bus tickets across the Towns.

As part of a new fare structure, the bus operator is reducing prices across the county from Sunday.

The £6 and £20 weekly Medway zone tickets will stay at their current prices but the four-weekly and annual tickets, which cost £77 and £770, will be reduced by more than 10%, to £65 and £650, respectively.

Short hop fares from stops on the edge of town centres into town will be reduced from 80p to 50p, but the hourly ticket will no longer be available.

Emma Taylor, head of commercial at Arriva, said: “Our new prices are designed to provide customers with great value fares as well as simplifying the pricing structure, making bus travel easier and more inviting. Our weekly tickets offer excellent value for money for commuters and regular travellers.

“We’ve reduced or frozen most of our prices and although some fares have increased slightly, they still offer good value and the weekly and annual tickets are certainly worth investing in for regular customers.”

Fares in Maidstone, Swale, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge will also be changing.
