Bus fares frozen for Kenilworth commuters in 2022

Bus fares have been frozen across Coventry and Warwickshire by operator National Express Coventry.

Bosses said they want to fight back against the increasing costs of living, so have even cut some of their prices.

And the company also hopes that keeping rates the same will encourage people to "do their bit for the planet" and use public transport.

This is the second year in a row that NX Coventry has committed not to raising ticket costs.

The news comes just days after NX Coventry announced a more frequent service for the number 11 bus from Coventry to Leamington Spa via Kenilworth.

Commercial director Chris Gibbens said: "Although the price of everything seems to be going up at the moment - crisps, fizzy pop, even cat food - bus fares in the West Midlands are not.

"We have frozen National Express Coventry ticket prices - and we've even reduced some of them.

"And for anyone whose New Year's resolution is to do a bit more to save the planet, remember that getting the bus - even for the odd journey - is the easiest and cheapest way to keep our air clean and reduce the greenhouse gases you're responsible for.

"A five-mile trip on a bus puts out half the carbon than if you go by car."
