The original format as used for these tickets.

In September 1973, at the request of the bus operator, the existing ticket stock was returned to the Railway printer who added a coloured bar to identify each of the sections as follows: 1st section - not coloured, 2nd section - blue, 3rd section - green.
This example is a later print which incorporated the green bar when printed.


An early example of a bus driver-issued periodical pass.
These were highly unusual in being Edmondson tickets issued on board a bus.


The bus fare portion was calculated on the basis of ten single fares, however, as the ticket was available for unlimited bus travel, there was no provision on the ticket for the bus driver to nip individual journies.
