Nottingham bus fares increase by 5% or more from end of October – Robin Hood up to 12%

The increases will come into force on 31 October.

All Easyrider Everyday, Easyrider Anyday and multi-day ticket prices on the NCTX Buses app are frozen.

The Under 19 all day ticket, Grouprider, Network Rider, Park & Ride Return fare and Outer Area fares will also be frozen at their current prices.

A spokesperson said:

‘We will be increasing some single trip and day ticket prices for the first time in 2.5 years to balance the books against increased operating costs and reduced government COVID funding for the bus industry.

‘NCT’s fares remain competitive with other local operators and in line with neighbouring cities of Derby and Leicester. Some Robin Hood multi-operator prices are also changing, see below.

‘Fares for journeys in Nottingham from Sunday 31st October 2021 are below and apply when paying by cash, contactless, on the app or a Robin Hood Pay As You Go Card.’


  • Single – £2.40
  • Single x 10 Trips (App only) – £2.16 each when you buy 10 at £21.60
  • All Day – £4.40
  • Short Hop – £1.50
  • Clifton Fare – £1.30

The Local Fare and Inner City Return tickets will be discontinued due to the level of discount offered by these tickets no longer being viable and increasing cases of mis-use of these tickets outside their designated zones. Customers who have an unused Inner City Return ticket in their app account on 29th October will have the ticket swapped to a 24 Hour Cityrider.
