Q. How can I plan a journey?
A. Go to our Journey Planner found on the homepage. Enter the start point of your journey, your destination along with the date and time you wish to travel. There is also the option to select whether you would like to travel by bus, train or direct only, as well as the option to enter your average walk speed and desired number of stop changes. When you then click ‘Plan my journey’, you will be provided with the available routes for your journey selection. Click on your preferred time, and the full journey details will be displayed, with maps of the journey, timetables, fare information and any disruptions.
Alternatively, you can plan your journey by calling our Contact Centre on our freephone number 0800 464 0000 between 07:00 and 20:00 daily, who are on hand to help with any journey queries you may have. We operate a reduced service on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
Q. How do I find timetables?
A. Go to our Timetables page and you will be able to search for timetables either by their service number, or your location. Once you’ve filled in the search fields and clicked ‘Search’ a list of timetables matching your criteria will be displayed. Click on a timetable to confirm your choice and you will then be shown the full timetable information, along with a route map. There is also the option at the bottom of the page to download the traditional PDF timetable if you prefer.
Q. How do I use the Bus Stop Finder?
A. Enter your location or bus stop code (if known) into the search box, and the interactive map will display the bus stops located in that area. Click on the orange icons to select a bus stop, and the details of this stop will appear, along with the times of the next buses due to arrive. The service number of the buses will be displayed here, and you can click these to open the timetable for that service.
