Cheaper bus travel within Rhondda Cynon Taf this December


RCT Council is pleased to announce that a £1 maximum single fare for all bus journeys that start and end in Rhondda Cynon Taf will be applied for the whole of December 2023 – providing cheaper travel this festive period. 

Subsidised bus travel was successfully provided for a six-week period earlier this year, between July 24 and September 3. Following a recent delegated officer decision, the offer will be repeated next month using a further allocation from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund secured by the Council for 2023/24.

Today’s announcement confirms that the £1 maximum single bus fare will be re-introduced from Friday, December 1, to Sunday, December 31, 2023.

The offer will be the same as previously implemented, covering all scheduled bus services that start and end within the County Borough boundary. The maximum £1 fare will apply regardless of the bus operator and with no time restrictions – so it will be available from the first to the last service each day.

All journeys that start or end outside of Rhondda Cynon Taf will not be included within this offer, and bus users will be subject to the normal full fee.
