Once you have selected a region to travel in and gone to one of the Traveline journey planners, use the options to select the mode of transport. You should deselect all the mode options except for bus.
If you are travelling using a concessionary fares card you need to be aware of the information from the card issuing authority, usually your local authority, to confirm the availability of free travel.
When travelling across several regional boundaries you will need to plan your journey in sections between towns close to the regional boundary. Here are some examples:
Lancaster: near the border of Cumbria and North West
Northallerton: near the border of North East and Yorkshire
Whitby: near the border of North East and Yorkshire
Crewe: near the border of North West and West Midlands
Buxton: near the border of North West and East Midlands
Doncaster: near the border of Yorkshire and East Midlands
Peterborough: near the border of East Midlands and East Anglia
Oxford: near the border of East Midlands and South East
Gloucester: near the border of West Midlands and South West
Southampton: near the border of South West and South East
It will take most of a day to travel across each Traveline region by local bus.
Journey times will depend on how many breaks in journey you choose to have and whether you choose a route to take in scenery and places of special interest.
Because local bus travel is usually slower than rail or coach a diversion from the most direct route is likely to add significantly to the time taken.
You can phone Traveline from anywhere in Scotland, England and Wales and speak to a travel adviser for the region you are in. From a mobile phone you will be asked to select the region you wish to speak to. You can find the code numbers you will be prompted for.
