What's the best annual bus pass for getting around Norwich and the campus? Evy, Godalming


Our Answer:

UEA has a regular bus service to Norwich city centre and train station from campus; UEA students can make the most of it with a discounted bus pass from First.  

UEA’s campus isn’t that big that you need a bus to get around it but you can conveniently use the bus to travel and experience the fine city of Norwich and surrounding countryside and coastal areas. Depending on how long you would like the pass for and how far you wish to travel there is an option for you; the bus passes are available for either a year or three months and you can travel either throughout Norfolk and Suffolk with the Norfolk & Suffolk Network ticket or go for the Norwich Zones 1-5 if you wish to travel around Norwich and the surrounding areas.  

UEA has the 25 service which takes you into the city centre via Unthank Road and the 26 service which links UEA to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and takes you into the city centre via Earlham Road. Both buses start/finish at Norwich Train Station.  There is also 21 service which takes you to city centre via Bowthorpe and Dereham Road.  

Check out the Norwich Bus Maps provided by First to see how it all works.  

You can purchase your ticket online to be posted to you or you can download the mTickets app to have your bus pass on your smartphone.  

UEA is also linked with National Express and Megabus coaches which operate services to London, Heathrow, Stansted and Gatwick airports and other cities in the UK. There is also a Park and Ride bus service which links UEA to Costessy Park and Ride and Norwich city centre.
