Coronavirus Update Close

In line with the latest government guidance, we've put in place further measures in England to help customers practice social distancing. This includes limiting the available seats on buses.

Face coverings are compulsory when using public transport in England and Scotland. In Wales you must wear a 3 layer face covering on public transport and put it on before travelling unless you are exempt. It is also now compulsory to wear face coverings when using indoor public transport hubs in England only.

The safety of our customers and employees is our priority, so please avoid busy times, use contactless payment and take your litter with you. For up to date information see our Coronavirus page

Canterbury Christ Church University Student Bus Passes

What is a UniRider student bus pass?

The CCCU UniRider is a student bus pass available to all Canterbury Christ Church University students. Whether you’re travelling to a lecture, into the city centre or going for a night out, our UniRider ticket will get you there.

A UniRider is valid for the whole academic year, but there are three different types depending on the length of your course. Check out the table below for the validity dates and prices.


Where can I use my UniRider?

The CCCU UniRider is valid on all Stagecoach buses in Kent and East Sussex, not just the bus you need to get to Uni. That means you can use it for days out too. Whether you fancy a bit of shopping, a day at the coast or a bit of local history – if there’s a Stagecoach bus there then you can use your UniRider!

To buy or use your UniRider, you’ll need a valid CCCU student ID card. It's really easy to use your UniRider; each time you catch the bus show your student ID card to the driver and scan your UniRider pass on the driver's ticket machine.

How much is a CCCU UniRider and where can I get one?

You can buy your unirider online now for unlimited travel in Kent and East Sussex!
