If you want to make several journeys by bus during the course of a week, then a Megarider could be just the ticket. They allow as many journeys as you like on our buses for 7 consecutive days, within a given zone and usually work out much cheaper than just buying return or Day tickets. To see if there is a Megarider for your area, check out the list below.
If a week's travel is not enough, why not consider purchasing a 4-week, 13-week, or 52-week ticket from our website? They offer great discounts over the cost of purchasing a ticket each week and you can choose the start date in advance. We simply post the ticket out to you. Click here to visit the ticket sales site and choose your local area in the drop-down list of places to get started.
