Single trips & Daysavers

If you want to make just one journey, our single fares might be the best option for you. The fares are based upon how far you travel, so simply tell the driver your destination.

Our buses have an exact fare system and the driver cannot give change, so please make sure you have the correct money. The exact fare system ensures that loading times are kept to a minimum.

If you are making more than one bus journey in a day, you may find it easier and better value to buy a daysaver. This ticket is valid for travel all day on all National Express West Midlands and National Express Coventry local bus services on the day of purchase.

Swift PAYG - Our single and day cash fares are always cheaper when paying by Swift Pay As You Go smartcard. Click to buy or top up.
