We have an annual ticket available on our direct debit for £525. This is a continuous rolling contract which will run until you cancel your direct debit. and this is available to pay in full over the phone, or pay through our Direct Debit scheme. You will receive a smart card posted direct to your home which will be preloaded with the correct zone and ready to use when you receive it. The card scans on the ticket machine when you get on the bus. Please note the ticket is valid on the x93 between Whitby and Scarborough. It is essential that you make arrangements for payment as soon as you have enrolled to ensure you receive your smart card before the start of term. Failure to do so will mean you may not receive your ticket.
