How to book

Travel there by bus

  • If you would like to travel by bus, here are some options:
    • If you are studying for 4 weeks or more, we suggest you get a monthly student bus pass. It costs £44 for a monthly student bus pass.
    • Get a day pass (unlimited bus travel for 24 hours in Leeds) this costs £4.20. Get on the bus and ask the driver for a “FirstDay” ticket.
    • If you only want to get on the bus once (and walk home later or not use the bus again for whatever reason) ask for a “single” this costs £3
    • If you want unlimited bus travel for 1 week in Leeds, ask the driver for a “FirstWeek ticket” which is £15
