How does it work?

The River Bus network is divided into zones, just like the tube. Our services operate in three zones: West, Central and East and the fare will depend on which zones you travel in. Your ticket must be valid for all the zones you travel through. For instance, if you are travelling between Tower and Greenwich piers you will need a Central and East ticket. 

With a River Roamer ticket you can travel across All Zones. It's that easy!

Central Zone: All piers between Battersea Power Station and Canary Wharf
East Zone: All piers between Canary Wharf and Barking Riverside
