Back to school? Let's get there together!
We have some great features available to help you on your journey:
- Live capacity tracking on the First Bus App - track where your bus is, how far it is from your stop, and how many seats are free. You can download our app here!
- Space Checker on our website here - check your service for the busiest and quietest times to travel, so you can choose the best time to suit you.
For information on our school tickets, please see our Young Person Under 19 page here.
Public Services - on-board Coronavirus safety advice:
We are following government guidance and recommend all customers wear a face mask whilst on board. The government now "expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport."
Ventilation & Cleaning
We will continue to ensure that all windows are left open for additional ventilation in addition to our enhanced cleaning regime which will remain in place to keep you and others around you safe.
In England all seats will be in use from Monday 19th July and our buses will return to full capacity making sure we can take you to where you need to go.
Paying for your journey
Where possible avoid the use of cash and continue to use contactless on board or buy in advance using our mobile app.
You can pay with contactless on board our buses, or you can buy your ticket in advance on the First Bus App. If buying for a child, certain tickets can be gifted; this means that, whilst you complete payment, the tickets are delivered directly to your childs phone. Find out more about gifting tickets here.
