Can you believe that some people associate a bus pass with being old and boring? Well, the people in our group know better. To us it is literally the ticket to new challenges and opportunities for having adventures and a good time. We are a diverse group. Some of us haven't been on a bus since childhood. Some have only used it for a trip into town. Others are experienced bus travellers. We share trip planning and are getting to grips with the world of timetables, bus routes, connections, and online live updates. Our aim is to see just how far we can go and we intend making the most of our wonderful, free bus passes - while we can. We may even crack open a ginger beer or two.
