Guernsey's bus services are operated by CT Plus Guernsey Limited on behalf of the States of Guernsey Environment Department. The network of bus routes provides a high frequency of services to the Island's main shopping centres, beaches and visitor attractions, and our modern bus fleet offers a very comfortable and passenger friendly ride.
If you have any queries about the service, then staff at CT Plus Guernsey Limited will be happy to help you at their Information Kiosk at the bus terminus. They can also be telephoned on 01481 700456. Timetable and bus diversion information can be found on their website at www.buses.gg
Scheduled bus fares
A flat fare of £2.00 will apply to all journeys of any distance on all routes. However, upon production of an "Ormer" bus card, the fare for residents will be £1.00. In addition, local residents are entitled to obtain a multi-journey "Ormer" bus card which offers even better value for money and the chance to make big savings (see table below).
'Ormer' bus cards - fares as low as 60p!
If you catch the bus regularly, why not purchase one of our "Ormer" bus cards for £1.00. Cards can be loaded with pre-paid journeys in amounts of either 20 or 50. Pre-purchasing 20 journeys will reduce the cost of each journey to 85 pence whilst pre-purchasing 50 journeys will further reduce the cost of each journey to just 60 pence. Cards can be purchased at the Town Terminus Kiosk.

Free Travel For Local OAP's
OAP's (65 years old and above) residing in Guernsey or Alderney may travel free on the buses if they show the driver suitable identification, such as their medical insurance card. Please note that this does not apply to OAP's who are visiting the island.
Bus Stops and "Hail and Ride"
You can board the buses at any of the bus stops around the Island. These are either painted on the road or indicated by the bus stop signs on poles. As many bus stops are serviced by several bus routes, passengers are advised to wave down the correct bus when it approaches.
Please note that only the main bus stops are shown in the timetable. To work out times for other stops on route, take the time between the two nearest main stops.
Alternatively, you can 'hail' a bus and, provided it is safe, the driver will stop to pick you up (please note, hail and ride does not operate in the Town or Bridge area).
About The Buses
The buses feature Cummins diesel engines with the latest generation CRT trap which reduces main pollutants in the exhaust fumes by as much as 90%. Also incorporated in the design is a speed limiter for safety.
For the passengers all buses have kneeling air suspension, this means the ride quality is superior to conventional suspension and that when at the bus stop collecting or delivering passengers the whole bus can be lowered for easier access, this combined with a wheel chair ramp and an area for wheel chairs makes the buses fully disabled person friendly. The ramp is also useful for loading children's push chairs.
Other features for passenger safety and comfort include a full heating and cooling ventilation system, with hopper windows for additional ventilation, CCTV system for security and a large electronic destination display. Finally so you will reach your destination safely there is a full set of hand rails inside the bus, stop buttons at regular intervals and a sign inside notifying passengers that the bus will be stopping.
