Bus passengers across Kent and Medway will be able to travel completely free over the weekend of 24 and 25 June, thanks to a collaboration between Kent County Council and the bus companies, paid for with funding from the government.
This initiative has been coordinated to support the Kent Big Weekend, organised by Visit Kent which is promoting more than 70 tourist attractions across the county with many offering free or reduced cost entry.
The Free Bus Weekend is funded by the Department for Transport through Kent’s Enhanced Bus Partnership Schemes.
Passengers can just turn up and travel for free on any bus within Kent and Medway up to 8pm on both days and it is hoped that as well as supporting the Kent Big Weekend, this initiative will encourage more people to use buses again following the pandemic, to discover new places, visit friends or family and to help reduce the number of cars on Kent’s roads.
So why not leave the car at home, hop on a bus and discover new places!
