Grouprider offers unlimited travel for families and couples travelling together at prices cheaper than buying individual day tickets*.

A Grouprider covers up to 5 people, where there has to be at least 1 adult (aged 19 or over) and no more than two adults. A Grouprider can be used by 2 adults travelling together without any children too. All customers who board together on a Grouprider ticket, should alight together at the same stop.

A Grouprider covers all NCT services in the Nottingham Zone. For journeys to the Outer Area, such as Loughborough, East Leake, Burton Joyce, Lambley, Woodborough and Southwell, a Network Grouprider is required.
