SU President Jake Verity has secured weekly student tickets with First Bus.
The price of a weekly student ticket with First will be £8, giving students unlimited bus travel round Sheffield on First’s services for £1.14 per day.
First had initially abandoned weekly student tickets in September as part of a trade-off for the £1 student fares, however, they are now reintroducing the fares for a promotional period.
The £8 fare will be available until January on a trial basis when First will review the success of the move. The student singles had previously been on a trial basis but have now become a permanent feature of both bus companies that operate in Sheffield.
Speaking to Forge Press, Jake said: “Transport should be affordable, available and accessible for everybody.
“I think it’s so important that our students have the best deal they can possibly can to explore the great things Sheffield has to offer.
“It’s been a pleasure working with First again cooperatively to ensure that we can give Students a really good deal when it comes to travelling.
“For anyone wanting to explore more of Sheffield or get around the city in cold weather for cheap this winter, I’d encourage you to take advantage of this deal.”
