period bus tickets
For regular bus travel customers, particularly commuters, our 7, 30 and 90 day bus tickets or annual bus passes offer great value for money.
You can buy bus tickets for the Southampton, Southampton Plus or Network zones. 7 and 30 day travel tickets are available from your bus driver payable by cash or contactless, on theKey or our mobile app. 90 day bus travel tickets can only be purchased from the bluestar travel shop or online via theKey. Period bus tickets are only valid for consecutive days travel.
If you only use the bus now and again, multi-trip travel tickets are great, as these bus tickets don't have to be used consecutively.
Our best value bus tickets are available on our smartcard - theKey. You can register for your key from our website and then you can top up with bus tickets for travel online or from the bus driver or travel shop, bundles of dayriders and period bus tickets are available.
