Travel Norfolk launches new multi-operator bus ticket

2 weeks ago Mon 1st Aug 2022

The day ticket allows passengers to use all buses run by all bus operators across Norfolk and is an ideal solution for those who want to use buses to explore much further afield. 

The Norfolk Fusion Day ticket costs just £12 for an adult, £9 for a young person (5-19 years) or £22 for a group (2 adults 3 young people) and can be purchased on board the bus or via the Konectbus app

Davina Langley, Marketing Manager for Konectbus said

" This ticket makes bus travel much more accessible for all and we are delighted to support Norfolk County Council and work alongside the other local bus operators to help make bus travel easier and affordable for all to come onboard."

Councillor Martin Wilby, Norfolk County Council’s cabinet member for highways, infrastructure and transport said

“Travel Norfolk aims to make getting around Norfolk easier and help our residents make the smart choice for their journeys. This multi-operator ticket comes at a perfect time for those wanting to get around the county this summer and offers excellent value to those who previously had to buy different tickets when changing operator. We have 15 operators servicing our county so to get a single ticket across them all shows fantastic partnership working and is exactly the sort of thing we want to deliver to make bus travel easier across Norfolk as set out in our Bus Service Improvement Plan. “

The Norfolk Enhanced Partnership was formed in March 2022 and is made up of Norfolk County Council as the local transport authority and local bus operators including Konectbus 

The Partnership is responsible for delivering the measures and schemes set out in the Bus Service Improvement Plan which was published in October 2021.

Linda McCord, Independent Chair of the Norfolk Enhanced Partnership and who works for the passenger representative body Transport Focus said;

Better value for money and simpler ticketing are things that bus passengers in Norfolk have asked for so launching this ticket just four months into our Enhanced Partnership demonstrates how effectively operators and Norfolk County Council are working together to deliver the Bus Service Improvement Plan. We intend this to be just the start of improving the simplicity and integration of bus services.”
