Discounts on bus and coach travel

Find out about discounts and concessions available on bus fares.

All ages

Season tickets are a great way to save money if you make frequent bus journeys. Contact your local bus operator for information.

For shorter journeys see:

  • Discovery - one day's unlimited travel on all the main bus services in West Sussex, East Sussex, Surrey, Brighton & Hove and East Hampshire. (Note that Discovery is not valid on National Express and other long distance coach services or community bus services.)
  • Plusbus - unlimited bus travel added to your train ticket. Prices start from £2 a day.
  • Stagecoach Back on Board - half price single and return tickets for jobseekers who hold a Jobcentre Plus travel card (apply for a card at your local Jobcentre Plus office).

Children, young people and students

The standard bus fare for ages 5-15 is half of the adult fare, except on most Stagecoach services where two-thirds of the adult fare applies. Children under 5 travel free on all bus services.


Older and disabled people

If you are of eligible age or have a qualifying disability, you can apply to the County Council for a pass offering free off-peak bus travel on journeys made anywhere in England.
