Ticket Types

Day ticket

You can buy a day ticket from the driver on the bus and can use it from the time you buy it until 2am the next day.

7 day and 28 day tickets

7 and 28 day tickets offer unlimited travel throughout the period purchased.  They can only be added to a smart card which you can buy online from Plymouth Citybus or Stagecoach South West, from the Plymouth Citybus Travel Centre or from the driver on any Stagecoach South West bus. 

If you already have a smart card - a Plymouth Citybus Keycard or a Stagecoach South West Megarider - you can add or top-up your skipper ticket with the bus company either online or with the driver (or at the Plymouth Citybus Travel Centre if you have a Citybus Keycard).
