The 1bws multi-operator ticket gives you access to 27 bus operators and nearly 200 bus routes across North Wales. You can use it to travel on any operator’s services up the last journey on the day of purchase.

You can buy a 1bws day ticket directly from the driver of your first bus using cash or contactless card payment. On each subsequent journey, present the ticket’s QR code to the ticket machine reader.

Where can you use a 1bws ticket?

1bws tickets are valid on all local bus services in Denbighshire, Flintshire, Conwy, Wrexham, Gwynedd and Anglesey. You can also use a 1bws ticket on bus services starting or finishing in Wales direct to Chester, Ellesmere Port or Whitchurch (Shropshire). So, for example, 1bws is available for the entire journey on service 11 between Rhyl and Chester.


There are a few exceptions. 1bws is valid between Wrexham and Chirk only on the T12 and is not available on Townlynx’s 28 between Mold and Flint. 1bws is available on Townlynx’s service 6 between Mold and Pantymwyn but contactless payment may not be available on that service. 1bws is not available for use on tourist-type services (for example the X10) other than the 199 in Llangollen.
