Students attending Sixth Form Schools or Further Education Colleges are generally not entitled to any assistance with transport. However, students from low-income families may be eligible for support from a 16-19 bursary fund. For advice speak to student support services or your course tutors.

Easyrider under 18 Travel Card

The young person's travel card offered by NCT gives unlimited bus and tram travel in the City Area until 9:45 pm daily from as little as 75pence per day. It's flexible and convenient and gives reassurance to students that their bus journey is already paid for. The card is available from the NCT Travel Centre - proof of age required at the time of purchase. Once you have your smart card, you can renew online, by telephone, at the Travel Centre or by the cheapest and easiest way, by Direct Debit.

The Robin Hood Season smartcard allows unlimited travel on all bus and tram operators for a set cost per month (£45 or £37 by Direct Debit) or a whole academic year (£263). Each type of smartcard is available from the Victoria Bus Station Travel Centre, where proof of age is required.
