Student Savers for School, College or 6th Form
If you're under 20 and you get the bus to school, college or sixth form then we've got a range of specially discounted tickets just for you.
Regardless of where and when you travel, you'll save money compared to the cost of a weekly or monthly Young Person ticket.
And what's more, all of our Student Saver tickets are valid for unlimited travel, up to 7 days a week so you can use them at weekends, in the evenings and during half term holidays. As an extra bonus, if you buy our best value FirstTrio 3 term ticket then we'll throw in the Christmas and Easter Holidays for FREE!
Below you'll find tickets for many of the areas that are served by our buses with prices for FirstTrio 3-term or FirstSolo 1-term options.
FirstTrio tickets are valid every day from 4th September 2017 until 27th July 2018
FirstSolo tickets are sold for each term and are valid everyday in each of the three periods as shown below:
Autumn Term - 4th September 2017 to 22nd December 2017
Spring Term - 1st January 2018 to 31st March 2018
Summer Term - 16th April 2017 to 27th July 2018
If you live in or around Norwich and need the bus to get to school, college or sixth form then this is the ticket for you.
And as it's valid all day, everyday it's great if you're heading to the city's great shops or meeting your mates for a movie.
You can use it on all of our Network Norwich bus routes at any time, plus:
- X1 & X11 buses anywhere between Acle and Norwich
- X2, X21 & X22 buses anywhere between Worlingham & Beccles and Norwich
- X1 EXCEL buses anywhere between Dereham and Norwich
|Norwich Zone||£335||£120 per term|
For the 2017/18 school year, we're bringing our Student Saver tickets to our buses in our east coast YarLow zone.
You can use your ticket on any bus in and around Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, and as far as Martham in the north and Southwold in the south. What's more, you can even use it for travel on our X1 & X11 or X2, X21 & X22 buses from the coast up to Norwich Bus Station; ideal for a day out with mates at the weekend!
And if you're only travelling within Great Yarmouth or Lowestoft themselves, you can get a cheaper town zone ticket - check out the map below or our zone maps to see how far your ticket can take you.
|YarLow Zone||£435||£150 per term
|Great Yarmouth or Lowestoft Zones||£320||£110 per term|
Whether you live on one of our bus routes in Ipswich itself, or maybe come into the county town from further afield, then you'll need one of our Ipswich area tickets.
The same as all our normal range of period & multi journey tickets and passes, we've split the area into the central Ipswich Zone, and five corridor tickets so you only have to pay for the travel you need.
All our corridor tickets are valid for completely FREE unlimited travel within the Ipswich Zone as well, meaning you can use any of our buses for those short hops around the town - maybe to the Station or one of the many out of town shopping and entertainment destinations.
NEW from September 2017 you'll be able to use your ticket on Ipswich Park & Ride too!
|Woodbridge & Melton||£390||£140|
If your journey involves using our X1 EXCEL buses anywhere between Dereham and Peterborough, maybe from Swaffham or Wisbech into Kings Lynn each day, then you'll need a Western Zone ticket.
And you'll be able to use it for any journeys along the route in your free time too so what a better excuse to go exploring our region a bit further afield! There's loads to see and do in Peterborough and Kings Lynn and there's nothing stopping you heading into Norwich by simply buying a return ticket for the Dereham to Norwich section from the driver on the bus.
If your journey takes you across both these areas, or anywhere that isn't covered by any of the areas and zones covered by the tickets above then you'll need a Network Ticket.
This gives completely unlimited travel on any bus, at any time, anywhere across any of our Norfolk & Suffolk networks, and on the entire length of X1 & X11, X2 & X22 and X1 EXCEL routes.
There's three really easy ways to get your hands on one of our amazing value Student Saver tickets.
1. From our Norwich or Ipswich Travel Shops
Where you can also ask our helpful staff any other questions you might have about any of our buses.
You'll find our Norwich Travel Shop on Castle Meadow, right in the centre of the city. Its open Monday - Friday 0900 to 1730 and Saturday 0900 until 1200.
Our Ipswich Travel Shop is in the Old Cattle Market Bus Station and is open Monday - Friday 0830 - 1400 and again 1450 to 1700.
Don't forget...you'll need to bring in a passport sized photo for the photocard part of your ticket!
2. As an mTicket on your mobile
It’s really easy to buy your Student Saver ticket using our mTicket app. Just follow the simple steps below and you’ll be ready to tap, show & go!
1) Download the app from your app store
2) Create an account by entering some simple details as the app prompts you to.
3) Select either ‘Norfolk & Waveney’ or ‘Ipswich’ from the list of areas available. Then select ‘Student Tickets’.
4) Choose and buy your ticket following the simple steps within the app. A parent or carer can also buy the ticket for you at this stage, using their credit or debit card.

A couple of things we should mention...
If you upgrade to the latest snazzy phone at any time whilst your ticket is still valid then we can move your ticket to your new phone. Just download the app onto the new device and give our mTickets team a call on 0345 602 0121 or email email@example.com. Of course, the same applies if you lose your phone - we can transfer it to your replacement in a matter of seconds.
Oh, and just so that you know…if your phone is out of battery, broken, left at home or lost, you’ll have to buy a ticket from the driver to get on the bus.
You can find out more about mTickets on our dedicated mTicket page.
