Prices in the Portsmouth area
We are pleased to announce that we are freezing mTicket fares in Hampshire. The cost of your mTickets will remain the same, and in one or two cases the fare will drop.
If you opt to sign-up to First Unlimited, the cost of travel will drop by over 10%.
While we are also still happy to take cash sales on bus, in our travel shops and through authorised re-sellers, you will find that the cost of these tickets will increase.
