Why travel with us?
There are numerous reasons why it's easy to get around by bus.
Keeping you safe
We want to make sure that every passenger is confident when travelling with us. That’s why we’re working extra hard behind the scenes with an enhanced daily cleaning regime. Here’s a reminder of what you can do to protect yourself and those around you:
- Wear a face covering: The Government has stated that it is mandatory for passengers to wear face coverings while travelling on public transport. You must wear a face covering when travelling on our buses unless you meet the exemption criteria set by the Government.
- Open windows: Keeping the windows open a little helps air circulation.
- Use the First Bus app: Not only can you buy your tickets in advance, but you can plan to travel when the bus is quieter using the Space Checker tool. Plus you can buy your tickets in advance, plan your journey, check live bus times, track your bus and check live seat capacity.
- Pay contactless: To avoid handling money, pay using a contactless card, Google or Apple Pay.
- Keep your distance from others: To help you keep a safe distance from other passengers, we’ve marked out which seats aren’t available to sit on.
We offer a wide range of tickets including flexible tickets, which are handy for making occasional trips by bus. We’re still accepting exact cash payments on our buses (we operate exact fare only/no change given) but you could download the First Bus app for our cheapest tickets. And don’t forget you have the option to pay contactless on all of our buses.
Flexi 10 tickets
Ten handy single tickets bought on our App to use whenever you want. They’re valid for 12 months but aren't valid for travel on Glasgow Airport Express service 500. Ideal if you’re commuting just a few times a week!
Flexi 5 tickets
Five handy single tickets bought on our App. Use whenever you want, they’re valid for 12 months. (Not valid for travel on Glasgow Airport Express service 500). Ideal if you’re only travelling once or twice a month.
Travelling during the pandemic
In Tier 3 you can travel anywhere in Scotland and can stay in holiday accomodation. Guidance on travelling within Scotland is available here.
Our Space Checker tool helps you to plan ahead and travel with confidence. Space Checker allows you to see when your preferred bus stop and service is typically at its busiest and perhaps choose a quieter time to travel. You'll find it on the First Bus app or here.
