The direct debit scheme we implemented last year to spread the cost of annual passes proved successful and popular.
For this reason, we have FROZEN ANNUAL TICKET PRICES**, they remain the same as 2016/17.
Term passes and daily cash fares, however, will see an annual increase.
Passes for the academic year 2017/18 will become available from the 01st August 2017
To take advantage of the Direct Debit scheme you need to book your ticket by 15th August at the very latest, the first payment will be due on 01st September. Sorry, this is the last date as we need to provide you with mandatory notice of the first collection.
If you are an existing customer simply add any reserved tickets^^ if you have a new starter that person can be added as an additional ticket in your existing account.
Please retain your existing ScholarSmart card, we will not issue another one for next year, they will be topped up.
Thank you in advance for your support of our services,
