    Hello!

    I need to catch a bus to Clifton Moor on Monday.

    Are other buses in York the same as the FTR in terms of paying the fare- i.e. does a conductor come round, take your fare and give you change.

    Or are other buses in York like normal buses where you pay the driver when you first get on?

    If you pay the driver, do they give change or will I need the correct money?

    Thanks.

    Most buses are like normal buses. You can get a FirstDay which will see you to Clifton Moor and back. The drivers give change.

    Thank you. Will the 6 get me to Clifton Moor?

    And do you know where I need to catch this from?

    The 6 takes you to Clifton Moor (eventually), you can catch it from the town centre, see the routes here and here (both PDF).

    I worked full time at clifton moor for nearly a year.

    You need the number 6 and there is no conductor, it's a normal bus with a driver where you pay the ticket. They don't take £20 notes usually and depending on the time of day nor £5. I used to catch it at 06:10 from Tang Hall lane and if I gave him £5 he didn't give me change till I got off.

    No. First do a student return to town for £2 on the number 4 other (or did last year, presumably they'll do it again in the new year), but nothing subsidised. There will be a free bus between the two campuses (Hes East and West) though to maintain the "no more than 10 minutes maximum walking distance between lectures" rule (lectures end at 10 past and start at 20 to, even though the time table says it's 15 minutes past to 15 minutes past)

    This is after they actually build some teaching rooms on the new campus (i.e. not yet)

    Nope. I got a weekly ticket for £15 when I used to catch it.

    The number 4 is discounted for students though, at least it was when I was at Uni.

    I believe the student return is only valid as far as the station though
