Bus fares

Unfortunately, due to the fact that bus services in Shropshire are run by several different operaters, it is not possible to publish a full list of bus fares on this website.


It is best to contact your bus service operator for details of fares on the service you wish to use. Search for the timetable on the Traveline website to find details of which bus operator runs the service.


Shrewsbury Park and ride service fares, including concessions and multi-trip tickets, can be found here.
