Thousands of items of lost property are left on our buses each year; so if you have lost property on the bus you are not alone.

Our drivers collect all lost property found on our buses and return it to their depot, but it can take up to 2 working days to register lost property items on our system.

If you have left an item on one of our buses, the best way to recover it is to complete the contact form on our help and support page and select "Lost Property". Please include as much detail as possible.

Please do not go to the depot without receiving a lost property reference number from customer services first as depot staff will be unable to help.

In most cases, we’ll keep any lost property for a month to give you time to claim it.  We can’t do this though if the item is perishable (e.g. food) or if it’s a debit or credit card.  For bank cards, In-line with guidance from the banks, to protect the owner from risk of fraud, we destroy cards securely when found, please contact your bank as soon as possible.

If we have your property, you'll be able to collect it from the relevant office shown below as per your agreed time and date.
