Combined bus and rail ticket seeing growing sales

Transport minister Norman Baker visited Oxford this week to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the PlusBus integrated bus and rail ticketing scheme.

Since its initial launch in June 2002, PlusBus has seen growing popularity with ticket sales increasing by 25% in the last 12 months to just under one million transactions. The scheme has been boosted by growing internet purchases and to celebrate its 10th birthday, all PlusBus tickets sold online during June and July will
cost just £1.50.

Speaking in Oxford, Baker said: “We know that

people really appreciate the convenience of being able to buy tickets for their entire journey in one transaction. PlusBus ticketing is a win-win for passengers, making life easier, saving money and helping the environment.”
