Many of the public transport operators in Nottingham offer special discounts for students and we’ve listed the major schemes below. Several of the bus operators and NET (tram) also have promotions and student discounts on their single tickets from time to time as well, but if you travel frequently then you’ll usually save the most with a season ticket.

Post 16 travel support

Students attending Sixth Form Schools or Further Education Colleges are generally not entitled to any assistance with transport. However, Nottingham City Council is currently operating a partnership scheme with local colleges and 6th forms to co-fund free travel for City pupils from low income families.
