Student Bus Travel

NCT buses are clean, safe and good to go and we have achieved Visit Britain’s official industry standard, which confirms that we are following industry and Government guidance on COVID-19, social distancing and cleanliness.

Please familiarise yourself with our Safer Travel Guidance, which is in place to help you travel safely on our buses.

You can pay on the day using the NCTX Buses App or cash (exact fare) but for the best prices, buy your travel in advance using the NCTX Buses App or Easyrider smart cards.

Paying on the Day

If you are only travelling occasionally, you can pay on the day using the NCTX Buses App and your smart phone is your bus ticket.

Once purchased, click on 'Get Verified' where you’ll be asked to upload a selfie and then how you would like to verify your account.

We strongly recommend you select online verification which will trigger an email inviting you to upload your proof of entitlement.

Your account is usually verified within 24 hours.
