With the cost of living challenge and steep rise in the price of petrol and diesel increasing, hop on the bus to save money.  Simply sit back, relax and let someone else do the driving!

Everyone’s feeling the pinch at the moment with bills increasing, and now the price of petrol and diesel is creeping up and making the cost of running a car expensive.  There couldn’t be a better time to consider changing from the car to the bus for your local journeys.

Whether you use the bus often, just now and again, or haven’t been on board recently, we’re here to let you know there are ways to save money.  

Regular travel
Our day to go tickets offer excellent value for money and allow you to make unlimited journeys on our buses within Cardiff, Penarth, Dinas Powys, Llandough and Sully for just £4 per day, but you could save even more with week, 4 week or even annual tickets.  These tickets are also available within Barry and across our entire network.

Flexible tickets
If you’re not travelling often, our flexible app tickets might be more suitable.  Buy 10 single ticket for just £16 – saving you 20% compared to buying them individually on the bus.  Or if you travel throughout the day you can buy our Easy 3 bundle of 3 day tickets for just £10.40.  These tickets can be activated any time within a year of purchase, so there’re no rush.
