Skipper Ticket

Plymouth City Council, in partnership with all of the city’s bus companies, have agreed to offer the residents of Plymouth a multi operator day bus ticket, which will enable them to make as many bus changes on their journey as they like, regardless of the bus operator, for a whole day (from the start of the service until 2am the following day).  (It can even be used on Park & Ride!)

This ticket is known as a SKIPPER ticket, and can only be purchased on the bus from the driver.  The cost of each ticket is £4 for an Adult, £3 for a Child.

The area of validity for the Plymouth SKIPPER day ticket covers the whole of Plymouth including Torpoint, Saltash, Roborough, Langage, Ivybridge, Wembury and Heybrook Bay.
