New flexible bus tickets are to be introduced in Coventry for people who are not going into their workplace five days a week due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a recent Transport for West Midlands survey, a fifth of people didn’t know whether they would continue to work from home over the next three months, go back to their workplace, or do a mixture of both.

In response, National Express Coventry has created Flexifares, a choice of ticket bundles that work around your busy schedule, giving you up to 13 day tickets per month to use across their bus network.

The new bundles also save passengers money each day compared to paying on the go.

You can even roll over any unused tickets to the next month, which is ideal if your work pattern changes each month or if you are off on holiday.

If you are averaging three days of travel per week, the new bundles will cost you £39 per month for 13 day tickets, giving you unlimited travel on buses in the Coventry area including Bedworth, Kenilworth, Leamington Spa and Meriden.

Other five day and ten day bundles are available suit changing travel habits.

Chris Gibbens from National Express said: “We have listened to our customers and designed new flexible tickets to suit how we’re working since the virus changed our way of life.

“If you’re only going into work a few days a week, you probably don’t need a weekly or a monthly pass at the moment. So you can now get a bus ticket that matches your situation – and it works out cheaper than getting a day ticket every time.

“Remember, travelling by bus is the cheapest and easiest way we can all do our bit for climate change and clean air.”
