Arriva Bus Pass

Whether you’re racing for, queuing or missing it, travelling on the 699 is a student rite of passage - but did you know that with your exclusive, discounted bus pass you can travel as much as you like on the 699 and all other Arriva buses in Merseyside and the North West? So whether you’re hopping on the 699 to campus, exploring Sefton Park, taking a trip to Crosby Beach or just heading into town … this is your key to the city.

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 and secured a range of annual and semester passes, from Arriva, 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, Arriva have introduced a Price Freeze keeping the best deal for Liverpool travel for another year!

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
