Torbay Ticket Guide

+++ Torbay Zone now extended until further notice to Teignmouth +++

Singles and returns

Offered on all buses
Varying prices depending on distance

If you make infrequent journeys and are only going a short distance, you're probably best off with a single or return ticket.

 

A single gives you one journey, from the stop you get on at to another stop on the bus you get on. The further you travel, the more you pay. Buy the ticket when you board the bus.

 

A return lets you come back, too, as long as it's on the same day, and usually the same route. Sometimes, you can use a different number bus in the case of the routes being the same. For instance, if you buy a return on the 12 from Paignton to Torquay, you may use it on the 22 coming back.

 

If you’re travelling a longer distance or using more than one bus, it’s almost always cheaper to buy an unlimited day ticket. A return is cheaper than two singles.

Tickets for the day

The perfect ticket if you travel infrequently (maybe a few times a week), or if you’re just going out for the day.
