BUS fares in Barnsley are now capped at £2 to help residents during the cost-of-living crisis.
The price freeze will apply across the borough for more than two months, before a national £2 cap on fares between January and March.
South Yorkshire Mayor Oliver Coppard, said: “As we head into winter, I know just how many people in South Yorkshire are worrying about feeding their families, heating their homes, and affording the very day to day basics as the cost of living continues to spiral.( “Public transport is part of the solution.
“That’s why we’re not just introducing the £2 fare cap early here in South Yorkshire, we’re extending it to include trams.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
