The 1Bws ticket available for bus services across north Wales will now offer a one price weekly ticket as well as daily.

The ticket is a partnership project between the six local authorities and 27 local bus operators.

It offers customers the opportunity to pay one price and travel on nearly 200 routes across north Wales, using tap on tap off technology or with a ticket bought on board.

This month, to celebrate ‘catch the bus month’, Transport for Wales (TfW) and partners have extended the offer so customers can now also pay one price and travel for a week.

A weekly 1Bws ticket costs £28 for adults and £19 for children and concessionary pass holders.

A daily adult ticket costs £6.50, a child’s ticket (or young person with a My Travel Pass) is £4.50 and holders of English and Scottish concessionary bus passes also pay £4.50.

A daily family ticket is available for £14.20.

1Bws ticketing whether daily or weekly, enables customers to travel throughout Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham using multiple bus operators.


Lee Robinson, TfW Director for Mid, North and Rural Wales said: “At TfW we are working hard to improve our public transport network and we’d like to encourage people to leave their car and opt to use more sustainable forms of transport.

“The 1Bws project is a collaboration between TfW, local bus operators and local authorities and provides customers with the opportunity to pay one price and use as many buses as they need to travel throughout north Wales.

“We’re excited that we now offer a weekly as well as daily ticket option, which provides value for money and a great alternative to using the private car.”

It is possible for Scottish and English concessionary pass holders to obtain reduced rate bus tickets on Welsh buses.

Is it possible for Welsh concessionary pass holders to obtain reduced rate tickets in Scotland and England ?

This is a great value ticket that makes it so much easier when you’re using more than one bus company in a day. The name is a little clumsy though. I’m never sure what to ask the driver for… I assume it’s “un bws” but have had more luck asking for “one bus” and saying “the £6 one” to clarify. Currently it does rather rely on both customer and driver knowing what the Welsh for “1” is, which may not be the case for visitors in particular… I think a more descriptive, straightforward name like “North Wales Day Ticket” (and… Read more »

Great news. I have made use of the One Bus tickets. It’s so great being able to use several buses across north Wales.

Excellent idea. We used to have tickets like these way back when. It gives great mobility to the young and the car-less to access the beautiful but dispersed North. Significantly improves employment opportunities
