How do I get there?

For opening week, we will have our team of Inspectors out and about to make sure our services are running smoothly. 

From Monday 21st October all temporary stops on the Viaduct will be closed and normal bus stops will reopen. If your service doesn’t travel down Exeter Street, Royal Parade is a short 5-minute walk to and from The Barcode.

What’s the best fare? 

Travelling with the children? 

Remember children 16 and under can travel with a fare paying adult (any ticket) or a concession pass holder all day for just £1.50 (under 5s travel free). Just ask the driver for a 'Kid Add-On' when you buy your ticket. 

Travelling after 6.30pm? 

Grab a Nightrider ticket. It's just £3 for unlimited travel all evening. Cheaper than driving and parking in any of the nearby carparks - and better for the environment too. 

Heading out at the weekend?

The Weekend Wonder ticket is valid for travel in zones 1 and 2 from 6.30pm Friday until midnight Sunday. A great option if you’re planning more than one day out over the weekend.

Film, dinner or a round of golf... We'll get you there!

So, if you fancy that drink or just want to sit quietly and think about the film you've just seen (Joker, we're looking at you), just hop on board and we’ll get you home safely. You’ll save money and won’t have to worry about finding a parking space too.
