  1. You may pay a £1.60 return fare to the driver on the morning of travel. PLEASE NOTE: If the pupil does not use the Mybus on the return journey that day, the fare is forfeited and will NOT be refunded.


  1. A £6.00 weekly ticket may be purchased from the driver, on Monday morning ONLY. This covers the pupil for up to ten journeys for the week, Monday to Friday. PLEASE NOTE: If £6.00 is paid on a Monday and the pupil does not travel every day that week, the fare is forfeited. There will be no refund, no carry over to the following week, or any other recompense. This £6.00 ticket is a discounted fare and as such there are no refunds for bank holidays, training days or absences.
