Our fares are changing from 15 April 2024

price changes

The whole transport sector, like in many other walks of life, continues to experience cost inflation that we need to manage, which is why we’re making some changes to Midland Bluebird bus tickets from Monday 15th April 2024.

Following a review of our prices, we will be increasing our single and return fares as well as zone weekly, monthly and bundle tickets.  We’ll still offer great value, especially for those travelling regularly.

What’s happening and why?

Costs to run our buses continue to rise. We have worked hard to minimise the impact this will have on you whilst continuing to invest in our business and our colleagues - giving you better buses, improved punctuality and new services, as well as a fair wage for our teams who work hard to deliver services for you.

Single and return fares will increase by as little as 10p. Our Falkirk, Stirling & Clacks and Trossachs zone day saver tickets will remain the same price at £5.95.

Please see below an overview of our new prices for weekly, monthly and bundle tickets.
