Bus and Metro

One full bus is the equivalent of taking 50 cars off the road, helping to clean the air we breathe in each day. Public transport can save you money, relieve the stress caused from driving, and walking to the bus stop will help you burn some calories too. 

Tickets and Offers

Students

We’ve been working with National Express to bring BCU students an online bus portal, where you can easily book tickets at student rates

On the portal, students can purchase tickets for:

  • National Express services (mTickets)
  • nBus multi operator services
  • nNetwork services for bus and train travel.

Depending on the ticket type, you can purchase mobile tickets, add tickets to your current Swift card or purchase a new Swift card. You will need to register with your BCU email address.
