Discounted tickets and Concessions

At Connexions Buses, we provide well priced return fares offering a saving on two singles. These are all day returns and must be used on the day of purchase.

We also offer weekly tickets, available from the driver which offer a small discount on 5 days, but offer the sixth day for free. If you are looking at breaking your journey, or using more than one bus, buy a Day ticket priced at £7.50. This offers great value for money as you can travel from Ilkley to York on this if you wish  We also offer a Connex Harrogate for unlimited journeys within Harrogate district. This costs £3.70

Over 60s

We are pleased to be a member of the North Yorkshire Concessionary Fares partnership and accept all English National Concessionary Travel Passes. These have a red rose logo at the top corner. In the County of North Yorkshire, these are valid for free travel after 0900 on Monday to Friday and all day Saturday. In the County of West Yorkshire, these are valid for free travel after 0930 on Monday to Friday and all day Saturday. From 1st November 2012, all concessionary passholders can travel for the relevant child fare at times when they would normally have to pay full fare. This means that before 0900 in North Yorkshire and before 0930 in West Yorkshire, customers can pay the child fare (half the adult fare) for the whole journey instead of the adult fare before the time, and scanning their pass after. This applies to all services without any exceptions.

Under 5s

Under 5s travel free on all of our services. We welcome push chairs on our low floor vehicles although some bus stops may make it difficult for push chairs to access the bus.

Over 5 but under 19

Half fare applies to all of the above. From the age of 14, we recommend that you have proof of age to show the driver. This could be in the form of a driving licence (or provisional) or a copy of a passport. Please ensure that you ask the driver for a half fare. You can get a half fare return or weekly from the driver. You can also purchase half fare weekly and monthly or termly and annual passes on mobile phones.
