Updates to the bus pass

We’ve made some changes based on your feedback and now your bus pass will be uploaded to your student card, so there’s no additional paper pass. All you have to do is tap your student card on the reader when you get on the bus.

How to activate your bus pass on your student card
You will need to make sure that you have activated the bus pass on your student card before you start using it for the bus.
  1. After you have purchased the bus pass you will receive an email when your pass has been updated
  2. Once it has been updated, hold your student card against any card reader in Oadby Student Village social space (e.g. Olive Banks Study Space) for about ten seconds until the reader shows green.
  3. Alternatively you can hold the card against any of the attendance monitors on campus used for seminars/ lectures.
  4. Once you have done this your card can be used on the bus
Please allow at least one working day for your card to be updated after you have purchased the bus pass.

Alternative transport options

Walking to main campus takes about 30-40 minutes, depending on how fast you walk!

Cycling to campus is easy, with dedicated bike racks in Oadby Student Village and a large underground secure bike store on main campus. The easiest route is to follow the cycle lanes via London Road.

The Arriva Bus (U1/U2/U3) is a term time public service run by Arriva which offers various ticket options, including pay as you go. This service, along with the 31 run into the City Centre and are available at weekends.

We want your feedback

Please note that this is a trial service and so we would like to get your feedback on the bus throughout the trial. It also means that the service is subject to change and we want your feedback. We will be holding focus groups and asking for feedback via surveys so please make sure you get involved and tell us what you think. At the moment there is no guarantee that the service will continue into term two, but we will keep you updated on what options are available.
