You'll need a passport sized photograph the first time you apply for a First student ticket. If you're renewing, just give us your photocard number (unless you want to replace a dodgy picture!)

Travel with First couldn't be safer – most of our buses are CCTV fitted, our drivers are trained in the latest techniques and all buses have our revolutionary DriveGreen technology on board, guaranteeing a smoother ride.

Our student site gives information on our services to the main University sites, along with details of our great value tickets. Just select your place of study from the menu. Why not take a look around the rest of the site to see where else you could get to?
