Arriva has extended the area covered by its ticket that allows unlimited travel on its bus services throughout Tunbridge Wells, Southborough and Tonbridge.
The ticket can now be used to Pembury village and on the 228 and 229 services as far as Eridge, Crowborough and Jarvis Brook cutting the cost of travel for people in those areas.
Arriva's Regional Publicity Manager, Richard Lewis, said, "We are pleased to extend the area covered by our network ticket for the Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells area.
"Now known as the Tunbridge Wells Extra ticket it covers from the North Tonbridge Estates and Hildenborough right across the town centres to Pembury, Hawkenbury, Crowborough and Rusthall.
"Not only does the ticket offer great value for money but it also avoids the need for our customers to pay every time they use the bus, in turn helping our drivers to keep to time and the more they use the ticket, the more they save!
"As in other areas we serve, day, weekly and four-weekly variants can be bought from bus drivers or by using mobile phones. The weekly and four-weekly tickets are also available in local shops displaying the PayPoint, Payzone or ePay signs.
"We hope that the ease of buying these great-value tickets will encourage people to consider using the bus for their local journeys and this will help reduce congestion and pollution in the Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells area."
The Tunbridge Wells Extra ticket costs £5.20 for a day, £21 for a whole week and £69 for four weeks. Four-weekly tickets bought on line from Arriva's website or by using mobile phones are 10% cheaper.
A similar range of tickets covering just the Tonbridge or the Tunbridge Wells areas continue to be available.
