Moorsbus Serving The North York Moors
Fares on Moorsbus
We try to keep both fares and timetables as simple as possible on the Moorsbus.
May we introduce the Moors Rover ticket?
A Moors Rover allows you to use as many of our services as you need to on the day that you buy it. It covers all buses on the whole Moorsbus network as well as the Moors Plus.
Moors Rover adult ticket £8
Moors Rover child ticket £4 available to under 16s
However, up to 4 under 16s can travel free if they’re accompanied by an adult holding a valid ticket!
Local fares are also available, but only allow one journey.
And now for the complicated bit .....
English National Concession Travel Scheme bus passes are accepted on our network but not on the EYMS Moors Explorer. More information here.
Moors Rover tickets are sold and accepted on Arriva 5, 63, 81 and X93.
Moors Rover tickets are sold and accepted on the S&D 128 between Thornton Dale and Helmsley
and on the EYMS Moors Explorer ME1 between Norton (Malton) and the Danby Moors Centre.
The EYMS Go Anywhere ticket is also accepted on our services.
And..... obviously, all this only applies on Moorsbus operating days
Friends of Moorsbus are strong supporters of the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme.
We want to see free travel for bus pass holders continue, but with a much fairer reimbursement rate for rural bus operators such as Moorsbus so that the scheme no longer leaves us badly out of pocket.
Many of our passengers would not be able to travel without the bus pass and we don't want that to happen.
"For older or disabled people on low incomes, the free bus pass is a lifeline, giving them access to services and facilities otherwise denied to them.
But there are also key non-user benefits, in terms of better-off retired people with cars choosing to take the “free” bus into the busy market town, thereby freeing up another parking place, causing less congestion. Motoring organisations ought to be vigorously supporting the bus pass as a means of creating more road space for more essential journeys.
There is little doubt too, that if ENCTS were withdrawn, most rural bus services would disappear overnight, leaving huge areas of England’s countryside without any form of public transport apart from school buses."
