Totally agree with you, apologies for any misunderstanding.

sebrichter

I replied to someone saying this should be every day for soldiers. Not in response to the deal.

BoBeB

This covers veterans also.

sebrichter

I’m pretty sure uniformed soldiers travel free on TfL any day of the year. Just problematic when it’s becoming more and more risky to be out in uniform.

I’m just waiting for me dole money. Got a documentary in the making with BBC “Rags to Riches on the Dole” Hopefully then I can afford a tv license from the royalties ... do tune in

I think the OP meant to say Armed Forces personnel rather than Army Personnel, or does First W & S S have a thing about crabs and fish heads? Hot for the deal BTW.

Lots of people will be wearing a white poppy this time of year. Hopefully this deal will be available to those too.

jacjacatac

That number seems way too conservative for me, pretty sure we have/had Irish regiments in our forces for eons now. And now I'm googling... Personally, if people don't feel comfortable wearing a Poppy for whatever reason; so be it. Forcing people to wear something defo misses the point of the sacrifices made.

Haircut_100

I'm not surprised it costs so much, just think of how many seats it must take up. And how does it even get on the bus through those doors in the first place?

don't everybody who isn't familar with a bus route have to 'pay attention' to a unfamilar route?

Mechtup

No I mean as in person I walked up :)

Polly_P

Yup, you can even click the bus stop and all the details come up!. Without Google I'd be a lost individual :D even has the times, the routes and if the buses are late. :-)

Mechtup

For the most recent route I had to learn, I just looked at the timetable online and looked at all the stops and when I was dropped off one time I walked to find out where the bus stop was on the road.

Polly_P

Ha, you sound like me. I use Google maps to plan the bus route, screenshot the timetable to my phone and use Google Street view to click along the road to see where I need to be!

Ta for this. Don't forget many years ago they ripped out a very good train route that this busway appears to follow and it wasn't long since the last of the bridges was demolished too! Made my Dad laugh when they reinstated all they have!!

MR.GUS

The one from St Ives in Cambridgeshire travelling to the city centre & beyond is utter garbage, overpriced rubbish, massively limited, temporary infrastructure (portable buildings for loo's) regular crashes by "misguided" buses, folk getting vehicles stuck on it (closing the system down) flooding, contractors & contractee's sueing each other "free car parking (nope), hit & miss whether you can take a bike on board, even then it has to be a folding variety ...BIG white elephant! You end up paying a premium to use the service, many folk are better off taking the car ...I'm sad to say (plus you cannot tell where the hell your stop is coming back at night) ..this was all put along a defunct rail line, & has been such a "success" that on the other side of Cambridge (ripe for expansion) they are installing train tracks for connection to the city). Good luck with your white elephant

Michelle_

And don't forget you have to live along the misguided route for the journey to be reduced in time from previous journey to Manchester or you could use your car/catch a bus to get you to guided bus stop - tell me again why this is a good idea passed at a high governmental level.....??

Just looked on my phone and you are correct. Tickets are available for York but it seems only First day, week, month or Student. It seems to vary from place to place.

HotDealKev

Haven't downloaded the app but according to the site does NOT include York. No option in the list of available tickets to purchase these.

Grazz0r

It's only for student buses in Bath at the mo in the Bath / Bristol area (as far as I can see). Shame as it seems a great idea, but not voting either way as I can't use it. Hopefully we will see it on all buses soon! :)

james42041

Not worth it as my buses don't run late and first bus home is 630am!

wave

Monthly tickets weren't accepted on the old contracted night buses (which don't run any more?). They're accepted on all currently run by First, that's if you have a First Bristol pass... e.g., accepted on 24/7 75 service, and late night 73s. There's a page on their site that lists all the night services. This has been the normal price, for quite a while, though. Remember: if you're only travelling one way, over six miles (£3.50), after 7pm it is cheaper to get a night ticket. Edit: here's the link http://www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/bristol_bath/journey_planning/nightbus/. The N47 (Yate / Chipping Sodbury) is operated on behalf of South Glos. Council, and isn't part of the standard fares.

steviep43

Thought this was standard in Brizzle. Same price applies for weekday off peak too, although the buses don't run as late. First Day is better value for the time - £4 for unlimited travel at peak and off peak times I believe.
