What buses can I use my ticket on?

The Semester Card can be used an unlimited number of times on any of our buses within Hull, Cottingham, Hessle, Willerby and Anlaby. That's unlimited trips to University, Halls of Residence, your part time job, the cinema, the shops... anywhere in Hull!

The Student Discount Card or Go Card can be used on any East Yorkshire or Scarborough & District bus (excluding late night and special buses). So why not have a trip out to York on the X46 or up to Beverley, Bridlington and Scarborough on the 121? For more ideas about where to travel ring BusLine on 01482 59 29 29.
