University of Gloucestershire Student Bus Passes

Students travel from just £1.24* per day. Whatever's on your timetable, travel with confidence.

Unirider is the flexible student bus pass that gives you cheaper travel - pay once and use it as many times as you like throughout the term. 

 

Where can I travel with my unirider? 

If you can get there by bus with Stagecoach West, you can get there with unirider. 

All University of Gloucestershire tickets are valid on any Stagecoach West service. This includes services in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Wiltshire and into Bristol, Oxford and Swindon.  Unfortunately,  unirider tickets cannot be used on the N94. 

 

What do I need to get my unirider? 

You will need to present your valid University of Gloucestershire student ID. Unfortunately, we do not accept NUS or any other student ID cards. 

 

Where can I get my unirider? 

  • On the bus - single, weekly and 4 weekly tickets are available to purchase on the bus with valid student ID. 

  • Academic year tickets can be purchased  on the Stagecoachbus.com website.    Tickets will be given you on a Smartcard (an electronic card so no more hunting for your paper ticket!) 

  • Online - unirider 4 weekly tickets can also be purchased on the Stagecoachbus.com website. Please note valid student ID is still required upon use.

FAQs

What do I do if I lose my unirider?

We don’t replace lost or stolen unirider tickets. If there are exceptional circumstances, we may re-issue you a ticket for a £25 administration fee.


I'm not a University student, do you offer any other discounted tickets? 

We also work with local Colleges through-out Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Bristol to offer student discounts. Ask your College to see if you are entitled to a discount on tickets.
