As well as the Plymouth Unirider, students can also buy Unirider Gold, which provides unlimited, discounted travel across the whole of the operator’s Devon bus network.

Stagecoach will be promoting Unirider at freshers’ fairs at Plymouth University (22 September) and Marjons (23 September) where students can also enter a draw to win an annual ticket.

Bob Dennison, Managing director of Stagecoach South West, said: 

“I’m delighted we’re launching a Unirider for the Plymouth zone. Buying this ticket means students don’t have to worry about how to cover their travel costs across the academic year, leaving them free to explore everything Plymouth has to offer.”

Students can buy Unirider online at and they must show valid student ID alongside their ticket when travelling.
