Student fares

University students and staff can buy a single ticket from our Arriva bus driver for just £1. Just show your valid Durham University Campus Card as you board.

This gives you unlimited travel in the Durham District ticket zone. Tickets are available to students and staff at Durham University. For staff, the zone ends at Barley Mow whilst students can carry on travelling up to Newcastle using the X12.
