Rover tickets

Rover is our most popular ticket type and allows unlimited* travel on Rosso.

As well as regular priced Rover tickets for adults, we also offer discounted Rover tickets for young people under 20 years old.

From Sunday 14th January, Rosso will be part of the Transdev Blazefield Group. In conjunction with our colleagues at The Burnley Bus Company and The Blackburn Bus company, Rosso Rover tickets will also be available for use on Witchway between Rawtenstall & Burnley town centre and on Red Express between Broadway, Haslingden & Accrington town centre.

Most Rover tickets will be available to buy on the Transdev Go app - search Transdev Go now on the App Store and Google Play stores.

One day tickets are available to buy on-bus in paper format.

You will need a smart card to buy our 7 & 28 day tickets on-bus : getting a smart card is easy, click here for more information.

If you travel on Rosso only within Greater Manchester, a GMsaver ticket may be better value - click here fore information

If you travel further afield in Lancashire, the Transdev Lancashire ticket is now also valid on Rosso buses - click here for information.

If commuting into Manchester using Witchway or Red Express, Transdev Gold tickets can now be used on Rosso buses as well - click here for details.
