Combined train and bus tickets

Save money with a range of combined travel tickets. 


PLUSBUS is a discount price bus pass that you buy with your train ticket. It gives you unlimited bus travel (on participating operators’ services) to and from the rail station and around the whole urban area of the rail served town or city.

Add unlimited bus travel around town to your train ticket for as little as £2 a day with PLUSBUS.

Buy these from:

If you’ve got a Railcard you’ll get a third off your PLUSBUS ticket, and children aged between 5 and 15 pay half price.
