Coronavirus Update

*Revised Monday to Saturday timetable of the 25 and 26 Blue Line services from Monday 20th March until further notice. Free parking available in the main car park*

UEA staff and students can purchase UEA/First bus season tickets without ever setting foot on campus by downloading First bus's free mTickets App. The app means you can browse and buy tickets on your smartphone and store them safely on your device until needed.

How does it work?

  • Create an account and add your credit or debit card
  • Select the area where you are travelling
  • Choose the mTicket you want  - your bus tickets will be downloaded and live in a ‘virtual wallet' on your phone
  • Remember to activate your ticket before you get on the bus!
  • Show the driver the ticket on your phone


We advise that those wishing to renew their season ticket do so within 14 days of the expiry of their current season ticket.
