A special evening bus fare will come into operation during the duration of the World Cup in Norwich and Great Yarmouth.
First Eastern Counties is launching a single fare service of £1 in the city, in zones 1-5 and in Yarmouth every day from 7:30pm.
The initiative will run from Thursday, June 12 to Sunday, July 13 and will allow people to have a drink while they watch the game but will still be able to get home with ease.
“The bus offers a great travel alternative for a night out and is a great option for those who like to enjoy a drink in the evening,” said Hugo Forster, general manager of First Eastern Counties.
Steve Wickers, commercial director for First East England, said: “We know that the World Cup is a busy time for pubs and bars and we hope that by offering these reduced fares, people will make the decision to leave their car at home.”
