Kids for a Quid 03/02/2020

A while ago, we realised that there were too many barriers stopping younger people from travelling with us - so we decided to do something about it- we introduced Kids for a Quid. Young people aged 16 and under can travel for £1 on Saturdays within Bedford. No forms, no passes no fuss- just ask for a single fare and under 16s will pay £1 when travelling within Bedford Borough. 

We came up with a couple of ideas for things to do on Saturdays:

Treat Street, Bedford

Treat Street is a New York inspired dessert parlour taking you on sweet-tooth adventure including live ice cream making. Catch any bus to Bedford and walk down to the Riverside, alternatively our 21, 24, 27, 42, 44, 68 and 74 services all drop off right outside. 

Interchange Retail Park, Bedford

Catch our 42 service to the Retail Park for loads of big brand names like Next, TK Maxx and Sports Direct. There's McDonalds, KFC and Burger King for a spot of lunch too. 

Vue Bedford

Vue’s 7-screen cinema at Riverside Bedford is state-of-the-art offering: Sony 4k picture quality, Dolby surround sound, Stepped seating, VIP Seating and recliners. Plus you can purchase a ticket for a 2D film in a standard seat any day of the week at Vue Riverside for £4.99. If you book online or via the call centre there’s an additional 75p booking fee per ticket. Exclusions apply. See for full terms.

Kids for a Quid is available to under 16s travelling wholly within Bedford Borough. Journeys outside of Bedford will be charged at our standard fare. You may be asked to provide ID if you are lucky enough to look older than 16. If you have any further questions please get in touch. No further concession is available and the offer can't be used in conjunction with any other offer.
