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
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.
National Express have recently introduced Flexifare tickets, which provide you with up to 13 day tickets per month. Useful if you are not working on campus every day.
