This is probably a stupid question, but do University students still get the 40p bus fayres?
Also, what is this about railcards? Do all students get one and what is the fayre?
Thanks in advance

A number of banks offer a Student Railcard when you open a student account, which gets you a third off all train journeys, which is obviously good if you use the train a lot! You can buy them too, but I can't remember how much they are off the top of my head.

I don't think students get reduced fares on buses - well, they don't around here anyway. Depending on how many times you use public transport, it can be worth getting a pass. A pass for bus and metro for a month in Newcastle, for example, is about £30, so if you're spending £3/4/5 a day on transport it can be well worth getting.

Railcard is £20, or free with some bank accounts.

Oh cool thanks everyone.
I don't think i'll be using busses much anyway because evertthing is in walking distance from the halls at sheff uni. The only time I will be using it will be when I go home, which hopefully wont be very often haha! Even then it's only about £2.60 full fayre.

That's good with the bank accounts
