On our town service buses, like those of other major cities, we ask for the exact fare to be tendered to speed the loading of buses. However, if you do not have the exact fare, change can be given in the form of a credit ticket. This credit ticket can be refunded at the Tower Ramparts Travel Shop, within 28 days of its issue or can also be used to pay for your bus travel. If the ticket is less than the value of your bus fare, simply pay the difference with cash. If the ticket is more than your bus fare we can reissue a credit ticket removing the fare from your existing one. Besides cash fares, there is a day ticket and a range of weekly, monthly and annual season tickets.

Our Standard Adult fare is £1.80 with a £1.40 fare being available for shorter journeys to and from the Town centre.  A short hop fare (generally to the next stop) is £1.00
