    £1.50 for a bus (one way), but there's a daily cap.

    Trains are more expensive and it depends where you go, it's charged depending on the zone you go to. If your journey includes zone 1 then it can be quite pricey, at least £2 per way. The more zones you pass, the more expensive.

    It's cheaper to get a travel card. I have a monthly one and it's costing me about £178

    You can get the 18+ one, which gives you 30% off the normal fee
