Journey planner

Our range of amazing value, flexible tickets are designed to fit into your life seamlessly and help ensure you only ever pay for the travel you need. However you travel, we've got the perfect ticket for you.  

We've got a whole range of tickets available, whatever your travel needs are. Hopping on the bus is incredibly affordable; the price of a single ticket is just £2 for adults and £1 for children! There are also discounts available for students and young people who can save up to 20% on their tickets.

Like lots of other businesses, our costs are rising, but we're working hard to continue to improve the services we offer you. Some of the investment we’ve already made, such as more buses on several routes in April 2023, has already improved your journeys and made them more punctual.

We believe our fares represent good value for travelling sustainably at a time when fuel costs and the general cost of living remain high.
