How do I get a $1 fare?

21 February 2020

You should book early* in order to get one of the $1 seats. At least one seat on every bus is $1 - these seats are the first to be sold.

We generally release our seats 3-6 months ahead (sometimes more). When we release seats for a new set of dates we advise customers through the website and our email newsletter. If you wish to be notified of new seat releases, please sign up to our newsletter.
Once the $1 seats are gone, they are gone.

Please note the system will automatically calculate the cheapest price for the number of people travelling - it does not make any difference if you book seats individually or together - you will get the same price.

*How early varies route by route - on some routes you will need to book six weeks or more ahead. On others you may be able to book as litte as two weeks ahead. The rule is, to get the best price, book as early as possible.
