Child bus fares are available until your 19th birthday. Many young customers look very grown up and our bus 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.

We have a range of bus tickets available for children, single and return bus tickets are available from the driver when you board the bus. Dayrider bus tickets are also available which are valid for one day's unlimited travel meaning you can hop on and off the bus as much as you like!
