PlusBus general information

Next time you're heading home for the weekend, back to uni after holidays or away to visit your mates - ask for PlusBus at any National Rail station ticket office. When buying train tickets online remember to tick the '16-25 Railcard' or '26-30 Railcard' box.


Hop-on & off buses as often as you like!

A PlusBus day ticket gives you unlimited bus and tram travel all day (until mid-night), on participating operators services around the whole urban area of your rail-served town or city.

Use PlusBus to go shopping (for that killer outfit), then pop round to your mates house for supper. Use it again to go out to your favourite bar and finally to get home at the end of the evening. Awesome!
