Free weekend bus travel in Herefordshire

Herefordshire landscape with Bus-it Free weekend bus travel logo

From Saturday 4 September 2021, all bus travel within Herefordshire is free at weekends.

Thanks to investment as part of the Covid-19 Recovery Fund, anybody and everybody will be able to hop on and off any bus in the county, as many times as they like. No fares. The only condition is that the journey must be entirely within the county.

To help people make the most of the scheme, there are also additional services on Sundays serving several locations including Bromyard, Ledbury, Leominster, Kington and Colwall. A full list of Sunday services can be found below.

Bus travel will remain free to residents of pensionable age, and those with a qualifying disability through the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme (ENCTS).

To help keep everybody safe, it is still recommended that you wear a face covering when travelling by bus - and don't forget to check timetables for your return journey before travelling.

The council has allocated £800,000 from the covid recovery fund to this scheme and it is estimated that this could fund the scheme to the end of August 2022. We are monitoring usage and will be able to assess a more accurate timescale for the duration of the scheme over the coming months. We will provide an update on this so users are informed.

Free weekend bus travel is just one element of the Covid-19 Recovery Plan, which is providing funding of £6 million to support the county in its recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.
