How does it work?
Ask for PLUSBUS when buying your train ticket, for unlimited bus travel around town on all participating bus operators’ services. Your bus travel can be at the start, the finish, or both parts of your train journey. For each town there is one zone that covers the whole urban area. With your PLUSBUS ticket you can travel as much as you like by bus within this zone.
Most PLUSBUS ticket prices are around £2 to £4 a day, depending on the size of the town or city. With a Railcard you can save one-third off the PLUSBUS ticket price. Children (aged 5-15) pay half the adult PLUSBUS day ticket price.
You can buy PLUSBUS tickets (with your train tickets):
