    There's a website... I think it was called travelwm.co.uk but I'm not positive... you need to submit a photo too. Mine didn't take too long to arrive, but best to get it in enough time if you're concerned.
    maybe someone else can confirm this.

    do you remember roughly how much it cost and if it was worth it? im just thinking that i dont want to be in a situation where i get the U1 bus pass and then end up travelling on the 12th or w/e half the time (although i cant rmb if theyre same company so maybe its okay?)

    I thought the pass worked for various buses?

    I used the 12 most of the time and it was worth it, as you need to use it every day.

    You can apply online or just go to a shop in Leam for a unirider (U1, U2 & stagecoach all round the vicinity (cov, warwick, leam etc.)

    3 term unirider was $240 last year

    the 12 is a travel coventry/travel west midlands thing which is COMPLETLY SEPARATE..There is no universal pass.
    it is (U1)Stagecoach or the 12

    Well on the face of it, 12 is cheaper.
    The U1 is more popular among students. Its like choosing between Leam and Cov. They both have advantages but most people seem to head for Leam (so more people head for Leam because thats where everyone is (its a cycle))
    U1 are usually bit more busy I think. You get more locals on a 12.

    I was on U1 last year as most of my friends seemed to be. Hence when I travelled on a U1 i saw my friends and it was good. If I could get them all to switch it would be cheaper for everyone and still fun :yes:

    I am having a similar U1 vs. 12 debate with myself at the moment. The U1s are more frequent, which is a plus, but everyone seems to get them and I'm going to be living at the top of Kenilworth Rd and so I'm thinking that maybe the 12s are less likely to go past in the mornings full up without stopping than the U1s? But I'm a research student so won't necessarily need to be on campus for a certain time in the morning, so maybe that doesn't matter so much? Hmmm tricky...

    Its not that complicated. Basically there are 2 companies who run the Leam-Uni route.
    They both have buses going about the same frequency.
    If you buy a pass with one company you are committing yourself to taking their buses for the year..

    Don't get a pass for the 12. You will regret it when they only arrive every 30minutes in the morning full of old people and children wanting to go to Cov/Kenilworth whilst the U1 leaves every 10 minutes. Anyway the U1 is a sociable experience. All your friends will be on it too and time flies when your having fun with your bus friends. It might be more expensive but better value for money as you can use it to get around Leam, go to Kenilworth, Warwick and Cov. Plus the U1 runs later at night too for an additional £1 (though John never makes you pay it) Oh yes and you get John the bus driver to brighten up your life!!!

    Definitely get the U1 rather than the 12. More frequent, much shorter journey times and John!
