Student Travel Passes 2018

Nottingham City Transport is the biggest transport provider in the City, offering lots of frequent routes across Nottingham.

We are the only transport provider to run buses on to all of the main University campuses, so there’s no need to walk to lectures or back to halls. And whilst you’re on board, make use of our free Wi-Fi!

An all-day ticket costs £3.70, but you can save lots of money (and the hassle of finding the cash) with our special Academic Year or Calendar Year passes.

For a one off payment, at the start of the year, you can then make unlimited journeys all day, every day (including weekends and holidays) on every NCT Bus in Nottingham until it expires. NTU students can also travel to Brackenhurst Campus.

  • Academic Year* – £219 – that’s from just £4.47 per week!
  • Calendar Year** – £229 – that’s just £4.40 per week!

Both passes are on sale between 21 August 2017 and 21 October 2017 from our Travel Centre (NG1 2JS) and we’ll also be on campus during Welcome Week and Freshers.

Click here to buy your Academic Year PassTo qualify for these prices, students must present (at the time of purchase) a valid photo ID issued by their college or university that shows a course expiry date on. NUS Extra and ISIC cards are not accepted.

Additionally, University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University students can pre-pay online and then we’ll activate your Uni ID card as your travel pass when you start at Uni.
