The PlusBus tickets are issued from the station in the name of the PlusBus zone, so for Brighton you need the following combo:


Southampton is as follows:

You need to search for a station which is inside the PlusBus validity area. For example to find the Brighton B&H Plus Bus fares you could enter Brighton.
Ah thank you - ie the opposite of what you do on a bookings site. But I understand why. This makes perfect sense. Thank you

The Plusbus website itself is pretty good for just looking up prices and validity

Wallsend or somewhere on the ECML
It used to be a nightmare to find them. If a flow was fully priced EG Durham to Newcastle Plus Bus or whether you needed the Newcastle to Newcastle Plus Bus. Eventually it standardised on the latter.

plusbus.info isn't so good at telling you which stations you can buy Plusbus tickets for, though. It doesn't mention stations such as Christchurch and Falmer, for example. The big list of destinations on brfares.com includes Plusbus, but they're scattered amongst the other destinations.

That’s because there are no PlusBus fares for those stations. Not all stations that sit within a PlusBus zone have an associated PlusBus fare.
That's a theory, I suppose. As the tickets have been around since at least 2013, I think the problem lies elsewhere. Perhaps someone will have a look at the quality of the data now Traveline has taken over.

It’s not a theory, it’s a fact. If you look on the PlusBus maps on their website you will see that the stations are indicated differently to help highlight this.
