The Knot bus ticket
First Potteries, D&G, Arriva, Midland Classic, and National Express West Midlands have signed up to the scheme

The Knot bus ticket, a multi-operator bus ticket scheme was recently launched on Monday 15 April.

Local bus operators in Staffordshire including First Potteries, D&G, Arriva, Midland Classic, and National Express West Midlands with support from Staffordshire County Council, have all signed up.

The new day ticket will be priced at £7, and will provide unlimited travel on all bus services running in Staffordshire, and can be purchased from the driver with cash or contactless.

Nick Vane, Commercial Director of National Express West Midlands, said: “National Express West Midlands is delighted to join the new Staffordshire Knot scheme and offer this great value ticket to customers using buses right across the county.

“Having extended our 10A service into Chasetown, Burntwood and Lichfield last summer, and with our X3 and X51 services providing more frequent journeys in Lichfield and Cannock from the end of this month, we hope that customers will take advantage of our new services by using this new ticket.

“The Knot ticket is also valid on our 54 and 54A services between Stafford and the i54 business park, connecting customers with this major site of employment and growth.”

Dan Flanagan, Operations Manager at First Potteries, said: “We are pleased to be part of the new scheme that will provide seamless travel to people who want to travel across Staffordshire using the new ticket.

“The Knot ticket is a new ticket that sits alongside the ‘Stoke Smart multi operator ticket’ for journeys being made within the Potteries area and our range of commercial tickets that facilitate bus travel across the First Potteries bus network.”
