Woman: Er, excuse me?
Man: Yes? Can I help you?
Woman: I wanted to ask1 about buses to Manchester.
Man: Right. When are you going2?
Woman: Saturday, I think in the morning. How often do the buses leave?
Man: The first bus is at 8.30. After that, there’s one bus every two hours until 6.30.
Woman: And how long does the journey take?
Man: It depends on the traffic3, but normally about four hours.
Woman: Okay, I think I should leave earlier then. Can I buy a ticket in advance4?
Man: Yes, of course. Would you like to buy one now?
Woman: Yeah, okay. How much is it?
Man: Single or return?
Man: That’s £23.505.
Woman: Right… Just a minute… Okay, here you go.
Man: Thank you. Here’s your change, and your ticket.
Woman: Thanks for your help.
Man: Don’t forget your purse6!
Woman: Oh! Silly me7! Thanks!
