Changes to tickets and simpler ticket zones in Lancashire

published: Thursday, January 17 2019

We're making our range of tickets across Lancashire, Rossendale and Greater Manchester simpler than ever before from Sunday 27 January - and if you travel regularly into Manchester, we're making our tickets even cheaper for you!

Here's a roundup of the changes from 27 January. 


Greater Manchester tickets

Our Manchester area day, week and month tickets will be combined with the GM Saver range, creating one new, simple range of tickets for travel within Greater Manchester. 

GM Saver will now be valid on Red Express from Edenfield (Coach and Horses), all the way into Manchester; on the Witchway between Prestwich and Manchester, and on all Transdev and Rosso buses within Bolton, Bury, Rochdale and the rest of Greater Manchester.

GM Saver prices

Day ticket £4.60 (that's 90p cheaper if you're travelling into the city centre!)
Young persons' day ticket £3.40
Group day ticket £10

Week ticket adult £14.50
Young persons' week ticket £10 (only available on our app, Transdev Go)

Month £52 (only available on our app, Transdev Go)
Young persons' month £39 (only available on our app, Transdev Go)


Go Rossendale

We'll be replacing Rosso Rover with a new, better range of tickets - Go Rossendale. 

Go Rossendale will be valid on all Rosso, Blackburn Bus Company and Burnley Bus Company buses within Rossendale, and on some of our buses into Rochdale and Bury.

You'll be able to use Go Rossendale on the whole of Irwell Line 481 and 483 to and from Bury, and on the 464 to and from Rochdale. It'll also be valid on the Witchway between Burnley and Rawtenstall, and on Red Express between Accrington and Red Hall (the last stop before the M66).

If you're travelling between Bury and Rochdale and you previously bought a Rosso Rover ticket, you'll now need to buy a GM Saver or Lancashire ticket instead. 

Go Rossendale prices

Day ticket £5.20 (young person £4)
Group day ticket £10

Week £21
Month £75

There won't be a young person's weekly or monthly Go Rossendale ticket available to buy; our Lancashire tickets are better value, and can be used all across Rossendale and Lancashire.



Our Lancashire tickets can be used on any Blackburn Bus Company, Burnley Bus Company and Rosso bus within Lancashire - including on any of our buses in Bolton, Bury and Rochdale. 

Introducing Lancashire Duo

Travelling with a friend? Say hello to our NEW, cheaper day ticket for two people. For just £8, travel on any Rosso, Blackburn Bus Company and Burnley Bus Company bus within Lancashire, and into Bury and Rochdale too.

You'll be able to buy a Lancashire Duo ticket after 9.30am on weekdays, and all day on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Lancashire Duo replaces the Rosso Rover Duo ticket on Rosso buses.
