Student travel

Students can get great savings on their bus fare with a valid Student ID card when using our mobile phone app (m-ticket) or key smart-card, making paying for travel on Brighton & Hove bus services in Sussex and Kent a whole lot simpler.

Our mobile-ticket app can be downloaded free from both the Android Play Store or iPhone App Store. Once downloaded, simply buy your ticket with our app and show your phone to the driver when boarding. You must have your Student ID with you to show the driver.

The key smart-card can be registered at 1 Stop Travel where you show a valid student card. Once registered your smartSAVER on the key, you can top up online at smartbuses.co.uk.
