Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Young People can keep moving for less with Cheaper Student Travel


Oct 21, 2016

To help students across the north east stretch their finances even further, Stagecoach North East is reminding young people to pick up their flexible unirider bus ticket and make the most of discounted travel for the year ahead.

From library visit to lectures, parties to bars, shopping, cinema and nightlife, students can get on board with one ticket which offers cheaper travel across the north east and can be used as many times as needed throughout the year.

From only 83p per day, an annual ticket costs £250, or the cost of the unirider ticket can be spread out by purchasing each term from as little as £107. All students over 16 need to buy the ticket is their student ID from college or university and tickets are valid until 30 June 2017.

With bus services in Newcastle, Sunderland, South Shields, Teesside and Hartlepool, students can enjoy all the region has to offer, including fantastic shopping experiences, visits to the coast and country and a wide range of attractions throughout the north east.

Steve Walker, Managing Director, Stagecoach North East, said: “The unirider ticket is an excellent offering for young people across the region to explore their own town and discover what’s happening in the rest of the region, whether that be gigs or concerts, festivals, shopping, family visits or simply getting around town on a day-to- day basis.

“It means students don’t have to bother with finding the right money, looking for taxis or walking home in bad weather, and can be used any time of the day or night. As college and university life can be stressful, with exams and essays, it is one less thing to worry about when juggling academic study and making the most of their freedom and having fun!”
