Children and young persons tickets

Any bus fare-paying customer or bus pass holder (including ENCTS) can take up to two children with them under the age of 7 for free. Any additional children travelling on our buses will be charged the normal child bus fare (regardless of whether they are under 7 or over).

Child bus fares are available until your 19th birthday. After which, you will be charged adult fares. Many young customers look very grown up and our drivers may question your age. We recommend that ID is carried so that your age can be verified otherwise you may be charged an adult bus fare.

Child Tickets

If you’re going to use a number of our buses in the same day our unlimited-day tickets are ideal. These can be brought via our app or driver (day tickets only). To use the app the child will have to pass the verification process which is quick and easy to do.

Travel to school or college by bus?

We operate a number of dedicated school and college bus routes. If you travel to school using a dedicated school bus route, you will need to buy a Scholars Pass from our website and then gift the ticket to your child's app.
