The offer means passengers can continue to take advantage of the cut price fares to travel by bus to the many picturesque villages, countryside walks and family attractions close to the city
The discount fares apply on all but a handful of routes operating in and around Sheffield, including almost all those run by First and Stagecoach, several of which take you from the city centre out into the beautiful Peak District countryside.
Since the scheme was launched, one popular bus service which already ran from Sheffield to Matlock has been extended to the charming villages of Matlock Bath, Cromford and Wirksworth, with the £2 cap still in place.
The £2 single fares also apply on the Supertram network in Sheffield but there are some bus services in and around the city which are excluded, like the Peak Sightseer open top bus, which runs in a loop between destinations including Chatsworth House and Hassop Station for the Monsal Trail, with an all-day ticket priced at £6 for adults.
To help you make the most of the £2 deal, we’ve put together a photo gallery showing 10 of the most scenic bus routes starting in or passing through Sheffield on which you can now travel for just a couple of pounds one way.
