For those not sure how often they will travel can buy a bundle of 10 day tickets to use any day you want over three months for just £35.

Mr Gibbens added: “We also understand that some customers aren’t able to travel with us at all at the moment, and you needn’t worry.

“We can temporarily suspend or refund the ticket or pass if you simply fill in a request form on our website.”
