Important info for those who use the bus service

From June 4 Bayhopper buses will be free for students from 7am-9am and from when school finishes until 5pm Monday to Friday. Students can no longer travel on the bus for free at the weekend.

Students will still need to have a registered Bee Card with a child concession. The key is to tag on when entering and tag off when leaving the bus, so they don’t get charged a standard fare

To apply for a Bee Card and get a concession loaded, please visit or plan your bus journey at

If you have any queries, please contact us at or call 0800 4 BAY BUS.
