We abolished the need to show identification on our buses on 1 August 2012 and so freed up thousands of young people for cheaper travel. Gone is the need to prove your age or educational status and in comes a much simpler system - Solo! It's the super way to gain your travel independence!
If you are under the age of 19, every time you get on the bus, just ask for a Solo ticket. Or, even better, get a Solo card online. This card is not an ID card, its simply a product for you to buy. You can get period passes or have one as a cashless card that you can put money on to pay for your journeys. You can buy and now top-up your Solo smartcard online, making it even easier to save!
Please note, the 7 day Solo ticket is only available on a smartcard - this cannot be bought on-bus as a paper ticket.
Solo products and journeys are much cheaper than the normal adult fares:
|Single||Return||Day||7 Day||30 Day||90 Day|
*Available to buy on bus.
**Only available on a Solo smartcard.
We reserve the right to ask older looking customers for identification from time to time. This scheme is designed for customers under the age of 19 only.
You can buy all the Solo smartcard products online now. It's that simple.
