From 11 November 2018, the Weston-super-Mare Inner Zone will be renamed the Weston-super-Mare Zone. No fares in Weston-super-Mare Zone are changing but we are introducing the option to buy one single mTicket, ideal for customers who only use the bus on an infrequent basis.
The Weston-super-Mare Outer Zone will be removed so we'll only have a Bristol Zone, Bath Zone, Weston-super-Mare Zone and for anything else you'll need a West of England Zone ticket. This is great news if you previously bought a Weston-super-Mare Outer Zone ticket as your ticket now lets you travel across the whole West of England Zone. And we’ve frozen the prices of day and season tickets if you buy before you board the bus.
If you already bought a Weston-super-Mare Outer Zone ticket that is valid after 11 November, or you are going to buy one before 11 November and use it on or after that date, don’t worry, you don’t need to change your ticket as our ticket machines and drivers will accept these tickets across the whole West of England Zone. For more details on the West of England Zone click here.
To speed up boarding, you will no longer be able to top up your Travelwest smartcard on bus. However, you can still top up at Bristol Bus Station Travel Shop or one of the Payzone stores.
There are no price changes to the flat fare in Weston Zone, however from the 11 November you will be able to purchase one single mTicket on the app. Previously mTicket singles have only been sold in packs of 5, so the new ticket is great if you only use the bus on an infrequent basis. Don't forget all mTickets are valid for 12 months from date of purchase, so packs of 5 are handy for storing in your wallet to use as and when you wish.
|New individual mTicket from 11 Nov||Flat Fare Single||Pack of 5 Singles|
|Student/ Young Person (16-21)||£1.06||£1.20||£5|
