Bus tickets

Most bus ticket pricing is decided by the operators of self-sufficient bus services, which are primarily funded out of the fares paid by passengers to travel on them.

Within the Combined Authority area these commercial bus services, which are over 90% of the journeys operated, are run by Delaine, First Bus, Stagecoach and Whippet. Each operator has a range of single, return and multi-use tickets valid on their services.

You can check bus times using our journey planner.
