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.

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

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.

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:

You have to buy a rail ticket and the plusbus add on. Plus bus is not … 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.
