Fares and tickets from 24 July

5th - 26th Jul

Over the last couple of years, we’ve made various improvements to our range of fares and tickets based on your feedback, continuing to offer the best value for money that’s possible.

In that time, we’ve introduced flexible tickets, promotional summer offers that became permanent, discounted evening tickets, and our recently launched DUO tickets to name but a few.

Unfortunately, we are now at the point where we have carefully reviewed the cost of running our services, and we are reluctantly changing the prices of some fares and tickets from 24 July due to rising costs.

This is not a decision we have taken lightly, and we have kept price rises as low as we possibly can. Some tickets, such as our singles and returns, will remain cheaper than they were prior to July 2021, and some monthly tickets will have their prices frozen on our app.

Services revert to normal stands in the evening at Consett bus station

Following a successful campaign working alongside Durham County Council & Durham Constabulary, there has been a reduction in anti-social behaviour in Consett bus station.

Stand change at Stanley Bus Station on services 16 & 16A

In the event that another service is already on Stand F, services 16 & 16A will use Stand G and customers are advised to use an adjacent door to access their bus.
