Better By Bus summer 2023

Warrington’s latest bus improvements are under way, with continued low fares capped at £2 for a single adult journey and the introduction of capped £1 single fares for young people aged 5-18.

'Better By Bus' brings enhanced timetables, with more frequent buses every day. Get ready for:

  • Reduced £2 single fares for adults will continue, at any time and on any route
  • From 1 April, single bus fares for children and young people up to the age 22 will be reduced to just £1 on most routes in Warrington. Simply bring proof of your age and travel at any time of day for £1.
  • Unlimited concessionary pass use – there are no restrictions on when concessionary pass holders can use their pass. No need to wait until 9.30am, just hop on-board and catch any bus providing your journey starts and/or finishes in the Borough of Warrington. Hop on-board at any time of day, seven days a week. If you have an older person’s or disabled person’s bus pass, find out more about bus travel outside Warrington.
  • From 1 April - free local bus travel for care leavers aged between 18-21

Warrington's Own Buses bus

ZEBRA buses coming soon

In 2024, Warrington's Own Buses' all-electric bus fleet hits the streets. 

Explore Warrington by bus

Following our successful 'Super Summer Service' campaign, which was funded by Local Transport Fund money from the Department for Transport, 'Better By Bus' is the latest part of our work to invest in bus services in the borough.

As part of these improvements, you'll have better connectivity to key town centre locations, including Time Square, Golden Square, the Cultural Quarter, and the Youth Zone - plus the many places you can visit in Warrington outside the town centre, while making the most of cheaper fares and big benefits for concessionary passengers.

A greener way to travel

In 2024, bus passengers will also be able to look forward to an entire fleet of brand new high quality, accessible electric buses coming into service, which will give Warrington one of the largest all-electric bus fleets in the country, with all Warrington’s Own Buses’ services being operated using electric buses from its new all electric depot on Dallam Lane.

The Better By Bus initiative is one of many we will be delivering in the coming months and years as part of our Bus Service Improvement Plan

We all know the huge environmental benefits increased bus usage brings – we now want to deliver a first-class bus service that people can count on.

These improvements mean journeys will be 'Better By Bus' in Warrington, so why not leave the car at home and hop on board?
