Greenbank Bus Pass
Get from your Halls to campus, and all around your new home, for just £55.
If you are a University of Liverpool student living in Greenbank Halls you are eligible for an Academic Pass for £55, which would normally cost £410 for 23/24!
The University have made the decision to subsidise the bus pass for all students who are living in our off-campus halls, helping you to get around for less.
To purchase your pass head to the Guild shop along with your Digital Student ID and enjoy bus travel that fits around your timetable.

Arriva and the Guild
Did you know that your exclusive Arriva Bus pass was created following a Student Officer campaign? Back in 2018, the Officer team wanted to create more affordable bus travel for students and through lobbying Arriva, we secured your exclusive pass.
Whilst we sell the passes on Arriva’s behalf, we will also challenge them if the service doesn’t meet your needs. We work in collaboration with Arriva to share student feedback on the service, discuss Officer manifesto work and make the changes you need to see.
