New to Bus Travel? We've Got You Covered!

Travelling by bus is super easy, and we understand that your first time can be a bit daunting. Here's a quick guide to help you navigate your journey:

  1. Plan Ahead: Use the East Yorkshire Buses app or Journey Planner to know which bus to catch, find your closest bus stop, and check the arrival time.

  2. Arrive Early: Get to the bus stop 5-10 minutes before your bus arrives. Use the Live Tracker to see your bus's real-time location.

  3. Boarding: Signal the driver by raising your arm when your bus approaches. If it's late at night, use the light from your phone to alert the driver you're there. Let passengers exit before boarding. The driver is there to help you, so feel free to ask any questions.

  4. Ticketing: Inform the driver of your destination and whether you want a single or return ticket. Pay with cash, card, contactless, or the East Yorkshire Buses app

  5. Enjoy the Ride: Take a seat, press the 'STOP' button when needed, and relax as we get you to your destination.
