The States of Guernsey Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure provides services in the following areas: provision and promotion of scheduled bus services, provision of the schools bus services and the provision of bus shelters.

  • Buses

    • Guernsey's bus services are operated by CT Plus Guernsey Limited on behalf of the The Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure. 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 buses.gg/
    • A flat fare of £1.00 will apply to all journeys of any distance on all routes.
    • A flat fare of £2.00 will apply for all late night services that run after 10pm.
    • One child under 5 years of age can travel free with an adult. Additional children travelling with one adult will pay the flat fee applicable.
  • Introduction of new 'Smart Card' - 'Puffin Pass'

    • Following the introduction of new 'Ticketer' electronic bus ticket machines the new Puffin Pass is now in use.
    • New products have been introduced such as the 'Pay as you go' card and the a new Student card (allowing free travel by all under 16s or those in full-time education, excluding use of the night bus service) and a new monthly unlimited travel pass which can be topped up on line is also in operation.
    • An example of the new pay as you go 'Puffin Pass' is shown above.
    • For further details contact CT Plus Guernsey Limited on Tel: 700456 or Public Transport Section at Driver & Vehicle Licensing on Tel: 202227.
  • Free Bus 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.
  • School Buses

    • School buses are provided free of charge and are operated on behalf of The Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure by CT Plus, Island Coachways, Intransit, Island Taxis, Executive Car Services and Lambourne Taxis.
    • In addition to the school bus services provided, any school pupil is able to catch a public service bus free of charge providing they are in possession of a student "Puffin Pass", which can be applied for at the Information Kiosk at the town bus terminus.
    • Should you have a general query with regard to School bus transport, please contact Driver & Vehicle Licensing's Public Transport Section on Tel: 202227. See details of school bus services here: pdf icon Forest School [142kb] pdf icon Grammar & Sixth Form [137kb] pdf icon Hautes Capelles [114kb] pdf icon St Martin's [197kb] pdf icon Vale School [118kb] pdf icon Vauvert [112kb] pdf icon La Houguette [197kb] pdf icon Castel [191kb] pdf icon La Mare de Carteret High [139kb] pdf icon La Mare de Carteret Primary [56kb] pdf icon Les Beaucamps [125kb] pdf icon St Sampson [133kb]
