Students and Staff

It's quicker on the app

The app is the most convenient and quickest way to buy your ticket, and no need to queue up in the shop.  On the app price list you will see the public prices, but once you complete the one-off verification process, you will only pay the student prices shown below. When you have paid for your ticket it will be available to use on your phone straight away.

To complete the verification process:

  • Create an account with your Southampton University email address
  • Upload a head and shoulder shot or a selfie from your photo library
  • Upload an image of your university/staff identification

If you choose to use theKey, you can either top up online via the portal or visit us in our Unilink shop on campus.  When buying online, please allow 3 hours for your ticket to be available for use on the bus. Discount codes for theKey can be found on the Sussed Portal.
