Peterborough’s largest bus operator is encouraging local residents to get out and explore the great sights that make the region such a hot-spot for tourism.

Peterborough is home to some of the most famous and interesting destinations in the UK, and they are easy to access at a great price by bus. With a DayRider, a group of five can now travel for just £2.20 each for the full day, and a group of three for just £2.67 each in a Town Zone. Also, bus travel is still covered by the government’s £2.00 single fare cap.
