your night buses

Late night? All night buses run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so you can hop on the bus at any time. It's only £2.70 for a Boost day ticket (our cheaper student rate - find out more). You can use the bus all day until 4am with your ticket! Our frequent night buses stop right in the town centre and straight inside the main campus. Travelling with us is just so easy!

save with friends

Planning a night out? It's only £6* for a group ticket for up to four people all night long up to 4am. (Psst... that's so much cheaper than a taxi!) Buy at the weekend and you can use it all day too.

*After 6pm, weekends, public and school holidays. It's £9 at all other times.
