At Centrebus we recognise that not all customers are the same. We offer a wide range of great value tickets both online and on bus, we've tried to split our tickets up into how often you travel with us. Single fares can be found for each service under the routes section of our site. 


Travel Occassionally

            Travel Club

Single Return Day Tickets 3 Day Tickets

 Save 15% off every single and return fare with Travel Club.

It costs just £11 a year to join, and once a member just present your card to the driver to receive a 15% saving on any single and return fare 

Single tickets can be bought on bus from the driver. Simply pay and retain your ticket

Return tickets are sold on many services, and offer travel back later the same day at a discount price, usually giving a saving of up to 30p (and even more in some cases). 

Returns are generally only valid for travel on the day of issue, and are not sold in some ticket zones, including Luton, Dunstable and Grantham (in these cases it is often better to buy a day ticket).  

You can buy a Day Ticket from the driver of the first Centrebus you board, and then get unlimited travel in your area for the rest of the day.

Some day tickets are also valid to use on buses run by other companies, so offer even greater value - details are shown for each ticket product.

You can buy 3 Day Tickets from any Centrebus driver,

and then get unlimited travel for three consecutive days in your area, or the whole network (depending on which ticket you bought).


 Travel Together with TANGO!

If you normally buy a return ticket, take a friend and you will both get 15% off if you are travelling together. If you're travelling wholly within the Luton and Dunstable zone, Leicester Zone, Hitchin Zone, Grantham Zone or Melton Zone you can save an extra 10%, and save 25% when travelling together.

TANGO! is available for any journey with Centrebus that standard returns are sold on. Just ask the driver as you board the bus. Plus you can take two kids under 16 for free at weekends and during school holidays!


Group Tickets

We offer a group day ticket in some areas which allow up to 5 people to travel together for a day's worth of travel all day and every day for £6.50!

Our group day ticket is currently available in the following areas:

Leicester zone

Luton & Dunstable zone


Travel Regularly


Back to School


Weekly or Monthy Ticket

Season Tickets

Carbonara is our smart travel card which gives you the best value fares in the Leicester, Grantham, Melton, Hitchin or the Luton & Dunstable zone

 Back to school is our great value school travel smart card, it gives you a week's travel for just £10 in the Leicester, Grantham, Melton or the Luton & Dunstable zone!

Pecorino is our network smart travel card which gives you the best value fares across our network. Unlike Carbonara there are no zonal restrictions, and Pecorino can be used on nearly all of our services. It's perfect for those travelling across two or more services and costs just £25 a week.

If you travel regularly on our services, it is worth considering purchasing a weekly or monthly ticket, which is available to buy on bus from your driver. 

If you travel to or from destinations outside any of the fixed areas mentioned above, don't despair. We still offer a full range of season tickets, but the price you pay will be determined by the journey you make, and the ticket will then be valid between those points. Tickets valid for a week (and often for a month too) can be bought on the bus and the bus driver will be able to tell you the price, or you can contact us for a quote before you travel.

What is PLUSBUS ?

It’s a bus pass (like a travelcard) that you buy with your rail ticket (at the station booking office, or increasingly online). PLUSBUS gives you bus travel to and from the train station (and around the whole urban area of town) that’s at the start and/or end of your train journey. You choose.

Therefore, rather than driving in rush hour, congested traffic to and from the rail station and paying expensive car parking fees, you travel by bus. And there’s no more wasting time hunting for that last parking space!
