    If your journey includes more than one bus operator, or a combination of bus and rail, a Metro ticket may be the best option for you. Find out more here

    If however, your journey is on a route served by just one bus operator it is probably cheaper to buy one of their tickets. A range of tickets now exist, making it even easier and cheaper to pay for your journeys. Take a look on the following operator websites:
