Child fares

From 1 September 2019 we're revamping our child tickets, and starting some great new offers to help make it easier and cheaper for children to travel on the bus.

Child single and return tickets

Children aged under 16 can buy a child single, child return or child day ticket on our buses.  These are around half the price of a normal adult ticket, providing a big saving.  During weekends and school holidays you can save even more with our Young Adventurer fares.

You can buy any child single/return/day ticket from the bus driver, using cash or contactless.

Some day tickets are also available on the EY Buses app.

Children approaching the age of 16 may be asked for ID by the driver when purchasing or using a child ticket.

There are too many different fare possibilities to list here, but to get an idea of how much your journey will cost see our Common Fares Guide, ring BusLine on 01482 59 29 29.
