NTU and UON Students

Student Bus Travel

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 £4.20 from the driver, but you can save lots of money (and the hassle of finding the cash) by activating your Uni ID card as a bus pass!

Pay weekly or monthly and 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 on season tickets activated on their Uni ID card, thanks to our partnership with Nottingham Trent University.

If you’re aged under 19, cheaper rates are available on Everyday and Anyday cards.

How Do I Buy?

To qualify for student discount, 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. Travel can be purchased for use until the end of the academic year when the course ends.

Visit the NCT Travel Centre with your University ID card, which we activate for use as your travel pass for immediate use.

If you are a Nottingham Trent University or University of Nottingham student, you can pre-pay in advance of your arrival in Nottingham and have your Student ID card activated when you arrive. You can pre-pay here.
