If you’re touring with us for more than one day, your ticket must be used across consecutive days, and the date you select at time of booking should be the first day of your tour. Some tours also require you to select a time of travel, to guarantee your seat. If your ticket includes extras, you may also need to book additional dates & times for all elements of your ticket after your purchase is complete. See your booking confirmation email for instructions.

Yes, the lower decks of our buses are wheelchair accessible, with ramps enabling access to all vehicles within the Sydney fleet. The boarding areas in the proximity of our bus stops in Sydney are also wheelchair accessible. There is space for one wheelchair per bus. We regretfully advise that we cannot accommodate mobility scooters, and may not be able to accommodate larger wheelchairs, due to weight and stability restrictions. Please note that the total weight of the customer, their assistant and their mobility aid must be less than 300 kg (660 lb). This is to ensure the maximum weight capacity of our boarding ramps is not exceeded. The wheelchair also cannot exceed the width of the designated wheelchair seating area.
To avoid any disappointment on your day of travel, we would be happy to confirm in advance whether your wheelchair can be accommodated on board. Please send an email to email@example.com, including an indication of the width and weight of your wheelchair.
In the event that Big Bus is unable to provide a service throughout the period of the validity of your ticket through circumstances within its control, you shall be entitled to a full or partial refund of the price of your ticket.
