Bus fare information

First Bus

Visit First Bus' web site for information on their fares.

A member of staff can apply for a bus season ticket, but rather than having to buy the ticket themselves the University of Bristol will purchase it on their behalf. The member of staff then repays the cost of the ticket in either 5 or 10 monthly instalments directly from their salary. By purchasing a season ticket in this way staff will receive an additional 10% discount from the cost of a First Bus season ticket.

The University is a member of the Corporate Travel Scheme which offers staff great discounts on monthly and annual bus passes. To order your monthly or annual pass call First Bus's hotline number 03453 409021. Unfortunately First Bus are not able to sell these discounted passes on-line or via email at present. The 'Travel Plan Advisor' is Amy Heritage, UoB Sustainability Manager (Transport) amy.heritage@bristol.ac.uk

Young people (16-21) and students (of any age if in full time education) can get a 30% discount on all tickets across the West of England. Services and tickets prices relating to the University of Bristol.
