Fares On Buses In Chesham

Amersham News and Reviews Forum - Tue, 11/11/2014 - 10:44
Simple question really....

How much are tickets on the Buses in Chesham? I've never used them before and I wanted to go to High Wycombe this weekend for shopping.

I'm guessing Oyster cards are no good?

Are there rates for senior citizens too? Do you get day passes or just the usual singles and returns?

Thanks in advance!
