Acceptance of tickets on Yellow Buses and Morebus
1 month ago
Key workers in Bournemouth and Poole and the surrounding area can now use their bus tickets for either Morebus or Yellow Buses - regardless of which operator issued them - to travel across any of the operators’ buses in the region.
The companies are working together to allow those who carry out vital roles to travel easily, regardless of which operator their ticket originated from.
During this very challenging time, the operators recognise the need for key workers - whether NHS professionals or others carrying out vital roles - to get to-and-from work.
The two are working together to ensure key workers have the best possible opportunity to travel as-and-when they need to. From Monday 30 March until the coronavirus crisis ends, each operator will accept the other’s valid tickets.
Drivers from both operators will recognise returns, dayriders or weekly passes - paper, apps or smartcards. Tickets for journeys across Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole, Wimborne and New Milton are valid.
That means Morebus’ zone A, AB and ABC tickets will be accepted by Yellow Buses drivers and vice versa by Morebus drivers.
