New fares from Sunday 3 February

92 days ago Thu 17th Jan 2019

We strive to offer fares that are value for money whilst maintaining a widespread network or routes, as a result, the increase to fares from Sunday 3rd of February was kept as minimal as possible. 

Our app tickets will still be discounted to offer even better value.  In addition, tickets which are exclusive to the app offer customers the opportunity to purchase bundles of single or return tickets at a reduced price e.g. customers can travel for as little as £1.60 per journey with our 10 single ticket offer.

In the last couple of years, we have invested in new vehicles with latest technology including on-bus next stop audio and visual announcements; contactless payment to make every day travel simpler and boarding times faster; and have also introduced online top-up for the convenience of our iff card customers.

Here are the new fares from Sunday 3rd February:
