Student Travel 

There are now two Robin Hood smartcards for under 19 travel, both allowing good value travel on all buses and trams within Greater Nottingham.

The Robin Hood PayAsYouGo smartcard stores electronic money and charges the cheapest daily fare for any travel made, whether it’s on one operator or several operators. 

The Robin Hood Season smartcard allows unlimited travel on all bus and tram operators for a set cost per month (£45 or £37 by Direct Debit) or for a whole academic year (£263).

Each type of smartcard is available from the Victoria Bus Station Travel Centre, where proof of age is required. Each can be then be topped up at our network of machines at key bus stops across Nottingham. Full details can be found on
