flexible travel options to save you money
With working patterns changed perhaps for good and flexible working from home many people's norm, the traditional weekly or monthly ticket is no longer the most sensible option for many of you. We decided that there should be more flexible options that still allow you to save money rather than just having to buy your tickets on the bus when you do travel.
So we have a range of flexible tickets that fit however you want to travel. They’ll save you money too, at least 20%!
Here’s our guide to choosing the ticket that fits and still saves money.
