What is Minimum Travel Time?

The days indicate the time it would take to complete the pass if you stayed on the bus and did not hop-off. All passes can be completed in a shorter time simply by hopping-off before the scheduled end point. Across the winter months, we sometimes reduce our weekly departures which may affect these timings. Be sure to check out the latest timetables on our website or speak to our Reservations Team.
