New 1Bws ticket for services in North Wales introduced by local authorities and bus operators

15 July 2021

The ticket will be introduced to the bus network on Saturday 17th July.

From Saturday 17th July, one ticket will be valid on every bus* in North Wales. Once passengers have bought their 1bws ticket from the bus driver on their first journey of the day, the ticket will then be valid for travel on every other bus they use that day across North Wales.

An adult ticket will cost £5.70, a child (or young person with a My Travel Pass) will pay £3.70 and holders of English and Scottish concessionary bus passes will also pay £3.70. A Family ticket is available for just £12.00.

Using a 1bws couldn’t be easier. One ticket, for all day, valid on every bus in North Wales—Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd, Isle of Anglesey, Wrexham—and on buses from North Wales to Chester, Whitchurch and Machynlleth.

There are buses covering most of the region. It is possible to explore the North Wales Coast, Snowdonia, the Clwydian Range, the Dee Valley… from the comfort of a bus in the knowledge that someone else is doing the driving and you are doing your bit for the environment.

Timetable information for all buses in North Wales is available online at or; or by phone on 0800 464 00 00.

Ticket holders planning to connect with a fflecsi service MUST continue to book their journey(s) in advance via the fflecsi app or by contacting the customer service team on 0300 234 0300.

The initiative is a great way to get people back on buses and open up the North Wales countryside for the summer in a way that protects the environment.


*1Bws is valid on all local bus services operating in North Wales (the counties of Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd, Isle of Anglesey and Wrexham) with the exception of service 28 between Mold and Flint. It is also not valid on tourist services operated by open top buses, on National Express coach services and park and ride services.

The 1Bws ticket is valid on the T2 Bangor to Aberystwyth, T3 Wrexham to Barmouth, T12 Wrexham to Chirk and T19 Blaenau Ffestiniog to Llandudno. It is also valid on the new T10 Bangor to Corwen.
