    Looking briefly at ticket prices, the stagecouch website is offering £7.50 7 day pass (magic bus only) and ~£13 7 day pass (magic bus and stagecouch). How often do magic buses come? Is there a better weekly/monthly deal for travelling between oxford road (station) and fallowfield?

    I'm a Manchester Met student but given it's a thing on transport I should be able to help

    Magic buses come like every 30 seconds - literally. If you're waiting more than 2/3 minutes for a bus, you've waited too long :lol: I'd personally recommd buying a yearly Stagecoach pass which costs about £220 for the whole year, which means you can get all on all Stagecoach buses in Manchester and not just the Magic ones?

    It just means if it's pouring down with rain (inevitably going to happen in Manchester) and it's 5pm in the afternoon when everyone is trying to get down the 'curry mile' and so buses are packed liked sardines, you're not just stuck to the dark blue buses

    You can buy the bus pass per semester which I found really useful too - It was around £100 for semester 1 and £120 for semester 2

    Getting the bus from Oxford road will be easy but getting it from fallowfield will be slightly harder as they're usually late (not really late though) in towns buses are every 2 seconds outside of town, buses into town are every 10 minutes

    How about the free buses passing oxford road? Are students eligible to embark on those buses? Also, if you live near Oxford Rd is it still advised that ppl should buy stagecoach ticket?

    I wouldn't bother if you lived on Oxford Road; everything is walking distance - one of the reasons I love Manchester

    The magic buses are £1 for a single so if you do fancy getting the bus into town for instance, it won't break the bank
