Now available to use until midnight during term time, Monday-Friday
We have listened to our student customers and as a result we have removed the 8pm restriction on Term Time Solo Tickets. They are now more
attractive, especially if you have evening lectures, part time jobs or evening plans. You can now travel for longer on your Term Time Solo Ticket. Weekend restrictions still apply. You can buy one at any Merseytravel Centre. The Term Time Solo Ticket can be used anywhere in Merseyside, on any bus.

One Day SoloOne Day Solo
Available to use at any time on any day
We have now introduced the new One Day Solo Ticket, which is great for part-time workers or students who don’t make five return bus journeys a week. You can buy your ticket from the bus driver and it can be used on any operators' bus. The One Day Solo Ticket can be used anywhere in Merseyside, at anytime, on any bus.

The new way to travel across Merseyside for less
We have now simplified travel and have reduced the price of All Area Solo Tickets. Now your Solo Ticket is valid on all bus services across the whole of Merseyside. And it's up to 30% cheaper than the old All-Area Solo.
