Alpico Bus Tickets

by Melanie_Putra Online Now May 20, 2012 at 2:10 AM

Dear All,
I am going to Matsumoto from Shinjuku and intend to take the Alpico/Keio bus. I read somewhere that aside from the normal 1 way tickets, there is also the return ticket and the tickets sold in block of 2.

I will be going on the 16th and returning on the 24th or 25th. I believe that I can't use the return ticket since my return date is later than the stipulated 1 week.

But I can use the block ticket which was informed to me is 1 block has 2 tickets. Is this right?

May I know whether when you buy a block of 2 tickets can these 2 tickets be split by 2 different people (on the same journey)? Incase 2 of us travelling don't intend to return by bus so we can still buy the block of 2 tickets to use on the journey out. Thus, instead of paying for 1way ticket each costing Y3400 we pay for only Y2975 each(Y5,950 for a block of 2).

Thanks!
Mel
