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 card has been updated
  2. Once it has been updated, hold your student card against any card reader in The Village social spaces (e.g. Olive Banks Study Space) for about ten seconds until the reader shows green. Alternatively you can hold the card against any of the attendance monitors on campus used for seminars/ lectures.
  3. 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.
