Get there with the Mayor's fare
Any one-way ride. Any bus or tram. Anywhere in South Yorkshire.
From 1 November you'll pay a maximum of £2 on your bus or tram journey with new capped single fares. This will save customers up to 50% on some trips and reduce the cost of over 700,000 journeys that currently cost more than £2.
Bus and tram ticket prices
- £2 adult - any one-way ride on bus or tram anywhere in South Yorkshire.
- 80p child - young people will still pay 80p a journey on bus or tram with a Zoom travel pass.
- Bus and tram journeys which already cost under £2 will not be affected.
- The £2 fare cap only applies to single tickets. 1, 7, 28 day and annual tickets are still available.
What services can I use?
£2 fares are available on any bus or tram service which starts and ends in South Yorkshire, including services operated by First South Yorkshire, Stagecoach Yorkshire, Supertram, Globe, South Pennine, Hulleys and TM Travel.
How to pay
Simply ask your driver or conductor for your ticket onboard. You can pay using contactless or cash.
If you’re 21 or under you'll need to show a valid Zoom travel pass to get the 80p fare.
The Government's fare cap introduced on 1 January 2023, is an extension to the price freeze South Yorkshire residents have benefitted from since the Mayor's Fare was introduced in November 2022.
And as part of Mayor Oliver Coppard’s bold plans to combat the cost-of-living crisis in South Yorkshire the £2 fare cap will continue to apply to tram fares until the end of March 2023, funded by SYMCA.
