Green Line Tickets

Find the best value ticket for your coach journey

Our Green Line coach customers can take advantage of many money-saving ticket options. Ticket prices depend on where you get on and where you're going but you can rest assured there are lots of ticket types to suit your travel needs.

Ticket types

Single tickets

  • Perfect for one-way journeys, you can buy a single ticket from the driver with cash, contactless or via the Arriva M-Ticket app.

Day return tickets

  • Planning on returning on the same day? Buy a return from the driver in cash, contactless, via the Arriva M-Ticket app or online. Just keep your ticket safe so you can show it on your return journey.
  • You can return at any time on the same day and there's no need to book in advance.

Peak and Off-peak Day return tickets

  • Peak tickets can be bought directly from the coach driver, with cash, contactless, via the Arriva M-Ticket App or online.
  • Off-peak return tickets become available on the first service after 09:00 travelling to London and any time at weekends and public holidays.
  • Have a concessionary pass and starting from London? Peak times don't apply. However the Green Liner Plus is not valid till after 09:30.

Period Return tickets

  • Allow you to return any time up to 3 months after your outward journey, including the same day. Buy them from your driver in cash or contactless, or via the Arriva M-Ticket app and online here. Just keep your ticket safe so that you can show it on your return journey.
  • In some areas we offer off-peak period return fares, which save you more if you can travel at less busy times.

Season tickets

  • Make as many journeys as you want on any of the routes in your chosen zone for a whole year – that’s any 365 consecutive days (or 366 if it’s a leap year).
  • You can buy Season tickets online, as an m-ticket on your mobile phone and from our travel shops.
  • Season tickets can’t be shared with anybody else. They can only be used by the person for whom it was issued. You'll need to show a photo card when travelling.
  • Green Line 755 and 757 season tickets are also valid on Arriva local buses in the Luton and Dunstable zone.
