What's New?

  • New Flexible Ticket Bundles
  • New Multi-Day Ticket Bundles

Please view our Customer Guide on changes to our fares here.

Following a detailed analysis of passenger and purchasing data, our new Flexible Day Ticket bundles offer a solution to suit hybrid working and the end of the traditional commute. Better value for customers who currently purchase a weekly, or monthly ticket and do not travel every day. In new options of 3-in-5, 5-in-7, 6-in-20, 10-in-20, 12-in-40 and 20-in-40 bundles, only available on the First Bus App!

How does it work? As an example if you currently purchase a monthly ticket but do not travel every day, you can now save money by purchasing a 20-in-40 ticket bundle. You can then travel for 20 days within a 40 day period.
