Great value group tickets for the May Bank Holiday

2 months ago Wed 1st May 2024

Grab your family and friends this bank holiday weekend and head out on the bus with our great value group tickets.

Whilst the weather may look unpredictable, rain or shine our group tickets can help you save money whether you are simply heading to town for a coffee and some retail therapy or you are off to the park for some fresh air!

any combination

Up to four people can travel with our group tickets and it doesn’t matter what the combination of adults or children is -so whether it’s just one adult travelling with three children or a group of four adults; our group tickets will help you save money.

Less than four of you travelling?  You may find that the group ticket could still work out the best value for you!

For example, two adults travelling together within Reading, making a return trip can save a third compared to buying individual £2 single tickets.

group tickets

We have two different group tickets to pick, depending on where you need to get to. Which one is best for you depends on the area you are travelling in.
