Public Transport

Reliable, frequent bus services are a key factor of any successful Travel Plan. With the exception of most rural bus routes, services are operated on a commercial basis. This makes it difficult for the Passenger Transport Authority or the University to control fare levels or provide new services. This does not mean we should give up. The University has and continues to work closely with First Eastern Counties to make improvements to services.

UEA/First Bus Launch mticket for Smartphone

From 1 June, staff and students at the University will be able to buy tickets on their smart phones via a new app, "First Mobile Tickets". UEA customers will no longer need to complete a paper based application, provide or photo or queue during the first week of term to purchase their 3month, Annual Zone 1 - 5 or Annual Network or the Trio (valid between 1 September 2014 and 30 June 2015).

The initiative means students will be able to buy their tickets even before they arrive on campus so can enjoy the benefits of affordable bus travel from day one at UEA.

UEA customers can now purchase via the "First Mobile Ticket App" which is available for free on App Store and Google Play. Customers simply download the app, register, select the ticket they want and navigate the secure payment system. Once the payment section is complete, bus tickets will be downloaded and live in a virtual wallet ready for the customer to show the driver. Repeat users need only select the required tickets and confirm their debit/credit card's security code.

Dawn Dewar, Transport Coordinator, UEA said, "we are very pleased to have been able to work in partnership with First Bus to develop this app; the use of smartphones and apps is very much the way in which our students are used to communicating and buying goods so it makes perfect sense to provide a platform that suits their lifestyle. Furthermore we are the first University to launch a mticket so this is very exciting"

Konect Bus 9: Wymondham to UEA via NNUH

Please note the following information provided by Konect Bus in respect of changes to this service:

“Service 9 was changed in January and the peak period only buses were withdrawn from the Campus due mainly because of traffic congestion in the area and very low numbers using the bus from UEA. This was causing a knock on effect at the Hospital and to improve reliability from there buses were withdrawn from UEA.
The off peak service still operates as before.”
