Q. what ticket formats are available / can be used?

As well as paper tickets, metrobus accepts tickets loaded onto a travelwest Travelcard and the First Bus app.

The format in which a ticket is available / dispensed depends on the ticket type and where it’s purchased. For instance, one single or day ticket is only available as a paper ticket, whereas a pack of five single tickets is dispensed on a travelwest Travelcard.

Most ticket types are available for purchase from travelwest and in the First Bus app.

Q. are bus passes accepted?

English concessionary bus passes are all accepted after 09:00 (all day on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays).

Q. how much do children pay?

Children up to the age of 4 travel free.

Children between the ages of 5 and 15 travel for half the price of an adult.
