BFCG (Bus Fare Cap Grant)

The Bus Fare Cap Grant (BFCG) scheme in England was introduced to enable bus operators (outside of London) to cap the price of a single journey by bus at £2, without running services unprofitably.

The scheme was introduced in January 2022 and has been extended several times. It was launched by the Department for Transport as part of the Help for Households initiative from the Government.

The Bus Fare Cap Grant (BFCG) scheme will run until November 2024. From November 2023 the single journey fare cap will rise to £2.50 in England.
