Build your Perfect Pass
We know that things are different this year, and this may impact your travel plans so we recommend you do the maths first before deciding which pass is right for you.
After listening to Student feedback, our Student Officers campaigned to secure a range of annual and semester passes, which fit around your timetable and give you the opportunity to get to know the city even better. And in the first piece of good news in 2020, we have introduced a Price Freeze so we will be keeping the best deal for Liverpool travel for another year!
Research before you buy:
A bus pass may not be the best deal for you, particularly if you only use the bus a couple of times a week. There are lots of other ticket options available from Arriva, including Student Singles and weekly passes - so do your research first and find the best deal for you and the amount of travel you’ll be doing www.arrivabus.co.uk/bus-tickets
