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.”
