A Bedford Borough Council spokesperson, said: “We hope that these discounted fares will help residents reduce their costs as they use buses to get to school, to work and to visit our town and city centres.

“Swapping car journeys for bus trips will also help to reduce the number of cars reducing congestion, cutting emissions and improving the environment.

“With these discounted fares we encourage residents to give it a go and get around for £2 this spring.”
