Hi, it this available in Middlesbrough? X

Here in Cornwall the offer is for £20!!

On First Manchester buses five of you get on with a shopping receipt you're sorted . Revenue is not taken seriously : even pensioner pass holders just 'pat their chest' instead of showing the bus pass : driver's don't care & their bosses even less

it's a great deal, no need to buy in advance.

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!!

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

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.....??

Don't forget to wave at me whilst I'm stuck getting home from a night shift on the East Lancs!

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.

In Leeds the First bus single tickets definitely last for 12 months, … In Leeds the First bus single tickets definitely last for 12 months, although the first day tickets do only last 3 months.When I say all areas, they were many First bus areas to choose from which are:Aberdeen, Bath and Bristol, Berkshire, Bradford, Buses of Somerset, Calderdale and Huddersfield,Devon, Doncaster,Dorset, Glasgow shuttle, Greater Glasgow, Greater Manchester, Hampshire, Ipswich,Kernow, Leeds, Leicester,North and Mid Essex, Heathrow Railair, Rotherham, Sheffield, South Essex, The Potteries ( where is that?), Universty of east Anglia, Worcester and Hereford and York.



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.

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!

A first day saver in greater manchester and surrounding areas is only £4 so no saving there for this !

First Bus night all day £3 from 7PM - 4:30am
Unlimited travel from 7pm to 4.30am on first buses might be national, seen in Bristol. Thought was pretty decent to save on expensive taxi fares.
Latest commentsPost comment

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

Banned

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 firstgroup.com/ukb…us/. The N47 (Yate / Chipping Sodbury) is operated on behalf of South Glos. Council, and isn't part of the standard fares.
Edited by: "wave" 10th Oct 2014

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.

Good old Bristle buses, I've voted hot as a fellow bristolian bus user

There are buses after 7pm? oO

Last comment, no doubt someone from England as they would know about being tight, they don't even have pockets in their trousers so don't carry money,from a Scottish female who is very generous as I keep paying out for English friends

I got mine at 8am this morning, the ticket is pre-printed and runs from today till midnight Sunday 2nd June. You cant choose what week you want. No need for photo. Great deal. Heres hoping it stops raining long enough to enjoy it!!

It isnt a simplified service, they have closed the garage at Cumbernauld and ended many of the services. Cost cutting, pure and simple.

£4 is good price though.

You have the option to opt out of being informed of future offers and promotions and if you select this option your data is disregarded and you won't be contacted by First Bus or any third parties. This is in compliance with data protection laws.

Hope this helps.
