Students Go for Less with McGill’s GoZones


McGill’s offers discounted travel for students with our day, week, 4-week and 10-week GoZone tickets. Take a look at the table above and see just how much you can save. And the great news is the ticket allows for unlimited travel, on any McGill’s bus, within your chosen GoZone, so just the ticket for getting to college or uni, meeting up with your chums in the evening, or heading to the shops or that essential part-time job at the weekend!

Buying a Student ticket is easy


Decide on the GoZone that you want and the duration of your ticket. (We offer day, week, 4-week and 10-week student tickets). You can buy your day or weekly ticket direct from the driver, just show him your matriculation card. If you want to go for the 4-week or 10-week ticket (these offer the chunkiest discounts btw), you need to buy these online (www.mcgillsbuses.co.uk), over the phone (the call is free on 08000 51 56 51) or from SPT.

One thing to remember- any time you travel with us, you’ll need to make sure that you have your matriculation card with you. If you can’t show it to the driver or one of our inspectors, you’ll be asked to pay for a standard adult single for your journey.
