student bus travel in Nottingham and Derby

It’s hard to make those student loan payments last all year. Even if you live on beans on toast, hunt down second hand books and stick to one gig or student club night a month, your bank account will no doubt be looking a little sorry for itself come the end of each term.
So make sure that you’ve got the essentials covered in advance – and save cash – with trentbarton!


 why pick student mango?

Rather than paying a load of money up front, you can spread the cost throughout the year when you need to travel. It will always give you the best price when you're out and about, saving you a juicy 25% off adult cash fares.


super savings

Our super caps mean that spending is limited, no matter how often you use the bus. Once you hit your cap, you can carry on using the bus, which is technically free. Sweet

If you're a regular traveller, mango has helpful daily, 7 day & 28 day caps so you'll never spend more than:


make as many trips as you like after 9am, and you'll never pay more than £4.65 a day.

7 day

all your trips, regardless of time, will be capped at £25 a week.

28 day 

all of your trips, regardless of time, will be capped at £75 over a 28 day period...

Plus, if you hit your 28 day cap, we'll give you £4.50 back in credit as a way of saying thank you for using the bus.

Finally, if you're making the odd trip within the Nottingham City Boundary, you'll only pay £1.


You can also use your student mango on NET trams in Nottingham. Simply touch on at a validator at the tram stop and touch off at the stop you get off at. NET tram have seperate caps for travel, so these trips won't count towards your bus caps, and vice-versa. You can find out more here.
