Hull Uni Discounts

Student at Hull University? You've got two options for discounts.

Semester Pass – Great for the regular traveller, and those who live outside of Hull, you can get a Semester Pass, saving you money if you travel a lot.

Cheap student fares – Perfect for occasional travellers, if you only travel every now and then, simply show your Hull Uni ID card to get your Hull bus journey for just £1.20! Ideal for those who live on or near campus.

The Semester Pass

What is it?

It's a bus pass available exclusively to Hull University students, which gives you unlimited travel* on East Yorkshire buses within Hull, Cottingham, Anlaby, Hessle and Willerby.

* Some exclusions apply, not for use on contract buses, special late night buses or special Hull Fair buses.

When can I use it?

You can buy it for either one semester at a time, or for the full academic year. It's cheaper and easier to buy it for the full year at once. Once you have a pass, it's valid every day until it expires, including weekends and university holidays.

Who is it suitable for?

All Hull University students are eligible to apply for a Semester Pass. It's ideal for those who travel regularly. Only students at Hull University are eligible for this card, and you'll need to sign up using a Hull Uni email address.

What buses can I use it on?

We have two types of Semester Pass available.

Our Hull Semester Pass can be used for any journeys on our buses within Hull, Anlaby, Cottingham, Hessle and Willerby, except special buses such as our Late Night Service 107, Hull Fair buses and contract services.

Our Network Semester Pass can be used on any of our buses across our network, except special buses such as our Late Night Service 107, Hull Fair buses and contract services.

Why should I get one?

So you can travel as much as you like without paying more! Go to and from your halls or house, the university campus, your part time job, the city centre, the cinema, the shops, your friend's house… as many times as you want! You'll never have to hunt for change to pay your bus fares, and you'll be able to budget for transport at the start of the year and not have to worry about it again.

How do I get one?

You can buy your Semester Pass on the EY Buses app – simply download it for free on the App Store or Google Play and then buy your pass using a credit/debit card or Apple Pay. Your ticket will be ready to activate on your mobile, and will last 18 weeks or 36 weeks from the date you activate it. Then simply show it to the bus driver each time you travel. You must use a Hull Uni email address when creating an app account.

Hull Uni Buses

There are lots of buses to Hull University. The main student buses are Services 103/105, which connect the University campus with the city centre and the main halls of residence in Cottingham. They're really frequent, and they've got free Wi-Fi!

We've also got special Late Night Buses 106 & 107 which are ideal for getting home safely after a night out.

Service 106 runs every Saturday and calls at Hull's most popular nightclubs, the city centre, Beverley Road, the University and then back to Cottingham and The Lawns. It's only £2 flat fare, and much easier than a taxi. We've also got a Saturday night journey from The Lawns and the University direct to Welly Club, Club Valbon and Spiders.

Service 107 runs on student nights (Wednesdays) direct from Asylum, Hull University's nightclub, back to Cottingham and The Lawns. Recommended by Hull Student Union, it's ideal for travelling home safely, as you can get on the bus right outside Asylum and get off the bus in the car park of The Lawns.

Sorry, University Semester Cards and Student Discount Cards can't be used on special Late Night Services 106 & 107.
