Smarter travel with electronic tickets
As soon as your child has a busID (see how to get one under our Discounts section), you can load tickets onto it online here or at 1 Stop Travel. It’s a little cheaper to buy tickets online, but please bear in mind that it can take 24 - 48 hours for an online ticket to activate, while at 1 Stop Travel it’s instant. Here are your options:
Online SAVER fares
1 Stop Travel SAVER fares
M-ticket SAVER fares
Please ensure you have your busID card with you to show the driver or ticket inspector when requested.
Flexible Multi Trip tickets
If your child will only be using the bus occasionally or you just want a more flexible option, then our citySAVER Multi Trip tickets are for you. You can buy single journeys in bulk and the more you buy, the more you save. What’s even handier is that Multi Trip tickets can be activated at any point within a year of purchase and are even valid on night buses.
|10 single trips||£11.75|
|20 single trips||£22.50|
|30 single trips||£30|
