The cheapest way for students to purchase First Bus tickets is through the mTicket option on the First Bus App.

We would advise looking through the ticketing options on the First Bus App to work out which ticket or pass makes most financial sense for you and your lifestyle at University.
Given the current situation, unless you travel to or from campus frequently (approximately at least three times a week) the annual bus pass is probably not the best option for you. We encourage you to explore alternatives if possible, or using daily tickets as you go.
