News from Cheshire West and Chester Council

News around for £2 The scheme that encouraged passengers to ‘Get Around for £2’ by bus from 1 January to 31 March 2023 has been extended to 30 June 2023.  

All bus operators participating in the original campaign will continue to do so. Cheshire West and Chester Council has worked with operators to encourage as many as possible to participate, although some services will not be eligible.

Journeys starting in Wales are not eligible for the scheme, however local concessions have been introduced by some operators.

If you do need to travel by car for some of the way, the Council’s Park & Ride services offer £2 return journeys, free parking and a quick and easy service into the city centre for details visit the Park and Ride webpage.

Slow Mow May

The Council has announced it will support this year’s No Mow May campaign.

After listening to feedback, following supporting the campaign last year, the Council will ensure there is a balanced approach, as not everyone agreed with leaving the grass uncut.

National charity, Plantlife, launched the #NoMowMay campaign which encourages everyone to leave their mowers in their sheds for the month of May to allow pollen rich flowers for nature’s emerging insects..
