Since it starts from today.

Note - Plusbus tickets can only be bought when you have a train ticket (even if it is only for a very short distance). Works out very cheap if you plan to take two or more bus trips in most of the listed towns/cities.

Even cheaper than when using gold card discount in some cities.
Was going to vote hot until I realised you can only purchase with a train ticket so, sorry but cold for me.

Another problem is that when travelling to some towns, the Plusbus ticket is a bit useless if you want to travel to the next one, whereas a local day rover on one of the networks often cover this and aren't much more.

is it possible to get a plusbus for a short journey or does it still have to be +30miles-ish

Damnnnnnnnnnnnnnn! .. like thats a downer? lol.
Samluk
Sorry, NO further discounts are available for children or Railcard holders with this online offer. Where the normal child or Railcard holder fare is less than £2 then the lower fare will be charged.

what a shame ~

True!, I hear you .. but in all fairness .. if the Plusbus is £2, & the Railfair Ticket is less then £2, then ..... lol. :-)

If you have a railcard it can actually be cheaper to buy the cheapest train ticket and plusbus than it is to get a day pass on the bus. And it has the benefit of letting you use most bus companies instead of restricting you to one.

Nice ..... now there's a smart thought? lol. :-)

If I've already bought a train ticket can I go back and buy one of these?
yes u can still buy plusbus day ticket on the same day shown on your train ticket. You just need to go to the ticket office to buy it.

so a whole pound off
some places do a free town service anyway

33% off, if someone offered you a 33% pay rise, I'm sure you'd snap it up.

Lots of towns don't do a free service, so what's your point?

I'd rather keep every pound I can, in my pocket, just in case a 99p deal pops up on HUKD.

mike

not exactly replying to your thread but will it be a good idea to make a post writing about which town do offer free city centre bus service?
I know Sheffield, Manchester, Southampton, Rotherham, Wakefield, Bradford, Nottingham do have it although area coverage is limited.

Manchester's is ok if you need very specific places -not so good if you're heading outside of Deansgate - Piccadilly

Thanks does this work in Birmingham on West MIdlands Travel please?
Been using these for years now.

I always remind my mates to buy one when they come to visit but in other towns I've had to explain to the drivers what they were.

With such a variety of transport tickets available, I find that most of the drivers get confused when presented with anything out of the ordinary oO

(Even the train drivers don't always know about the Megatrain tickets, which can be daunting for some people when they have to explain in a packed carriage.)

Heat added 8)
Doesn't work, though. I'm using it today with a cheap day trip to the Smoke and I still had to cough up the full PLUSBUS fare for WM Travel even though the website had £1.50 plastered all over it. Very unimpressed although I didn't get any grief from the bus driver when I showed my ticket.
Thanks for the tip off!
I sometimes use the bus to get to Villa Park and its always a nightmare having to remember to have the exact change and it costs nearly £4 for a return, I can get this with my train ticket and not worry.
A lot of drivers are unaware of this ticket but I've always been able to use it.

Very good value. :D

Thanks for the heads up, was gonna book some train tickets for June and the £1 offer for bus travel too is a great bonus :thumbsup:
I just made a train ticket purchase and noticed this, was wondering what that was about, but I already have a bus ticket for my local area :/ so no need and destination London does not support it.

I've just tried to add a plusbus to a southern railway journey and it has come up as more than £1.
So, I checked out the Plusbus.info website and it states that not all operators are in on the scheme - southern railway are not participating.


At the end of the day, many of the websites link back to the Trainline website. It would probably be the best site to start on to determine if the deal were available on your route/station. :)

I don't think that the deal should be expired.
Why is this expired? Can a moderator please sort this out please? :D

Try entering just Bournemouth (shortcode BMH) and keep going through the booking until you get to travel options where you will have the chance to add Plusbus - just tried with the date of June and the price of £1 did pop up.


OK thanks. I thought you had to buy it as you initial destination.

Wait, so I could just buy a monthly 'plusbus' thingy for my daily to commute to work and back in London (normally £2.40) for just £1.60 a day?


Yes If the area is covered by Plus Bus, there are a few towns that are included around London, then you can get a train into the place then have unlimited bus travel with Plus Bus when you get there.

My first post so please be gentle!! Found this really good deal whereby you can add unlimited bus travel to your train ticket from £1 per day. Apparently it's available in 195 UK towns and cities.

If you go to the plusbus site, click on the "What is the Fare" button and scroll down, it says Extra savings with your Railcard
With a Railcard (Disabled Persons, Family, Network Card, Senior or Young Persons) you will save one-third off the price of a day, or period return PLUSBUS ticket. It's ideal for days-out and for breaks to to visit your friends and family!

What I meant from my post is that is it possible for me to buy a single ticket over the phone, eg Birmingham to Bristol and add on the one month plusbus? single would cost me around £9 so I could still save a packet!


No.
Plusbus is not available from Birmingham to Bristol - there is no daily train ticket, all there are are savers (even the single is a saver single), so you cannot get plusbus.
As i said, plusbus is only available on daily train tickets, not on a weekly, monthly or any period return ticket.
As an aside, I had a look today and my machine would not let me issue railcard discount on the plusbus add on, so you don't save there.
Thanks for the post and welcome to Hot Deals Britchix :thumbsup:
Here's the info for anyone using Southern railways

You have to buy a rail ticket and the plusbus add on. Plus bus is not available on it's own. I work on the trains and these have been around for years, except now they are getting publicity.
It's of absolutely no use to anyone who just wants the bus, and is not using the train.
It's only really a good deal if you have a railcard (and need both train and bus).
Where i live, in Kent the plus bus add on is the same as the unlimited travel ticket offered by the bus companies.
As far as i know, you cannnot buy this from the bus driver and is only available at the train station - with a train ticket.
Also, you can only get a railcard discount on a daily ticket.
Personally, I think these tickets have a very limited market and aren't that great.
As i say completely useless to anyone only using the bus, as you must by a train ticket.
