Important School Transport Information




Ipswich Buses


Due to the impact the Coronavirus has had on how we all work on a day to day basis, Ipswich Buses will be accepting exact change only for ALL tickets. Drivers will not be provided with or expected to give change. This is one of the safety measures we have in place to keep our staff and customers as safe as we can. We hope you can appreciate this.


Please do be aware of the Ipswich Buses mobile app which can be downloaded on all smart phones simply by searching for ‘Ipswich Buses’.


The app also exclusively sells a ‘Termly Ticket’ which costs £200 and can be used across all of our town services for the Term purchased for which will include that terms holiday. Once a ticket has been purchased on our app, you can download a QR Code to scan your ticket on upon boarding our buses. M tickets can be gifted to the student's App meaning they do not have to carry any money.


Please be aware that we do accept contactless payments for tickets on our buses as well.
