It’s valid for 5 to 16 year olds in primary or secondary school across the South. Students at sixth form or college can buy a    student bus ticket or if you are studying at   university,   click here for unirider tickets. Those who look older than their age will need to carry ID.

Returning to school

As you get ready to return to school, we know you’ll have some concerns about what might be different for you when you use the bus. At this difficult time our priority is to protect the safety of children, our passengers and colleagues. 

When using our services, Students should always try to socially distance by at least one metre.

We have also created a number of dedicated School / College bus services, of which the Department for Education (DfE)  have advised that social distancing does not apply on these bus services.

Below is an update with the latest advice and information about travelling on these dedicated school bus services:

- Students are requested to sit with members of their own social bubble wherever possible
- Where Students from more than one establishment use the same bus, students must sit with members of their own school or college (more details below).
- Please keep windows open wherever possible for good ventilation
- Wear face coverings at all times unless exempt, e.g. medical reasons
- Students should not board if they or members of their household have symptoms of Corona virus
- Use hand sanitiser to clean your hands before and after your journey
- Maintain social distancing wherever possible at bus stops 
- We may need to change or adapt some elements of our plans as the situation changes in the UK. Please ensure you check this page regularly for any updates as we will add additional information as more is known.
