When you move in you will be provided with a code that will grant you free travel on the DIGS shuttle bus during university time ( 7am to 11pm). You just need to download the app and imput the code into the app to activate your ticket.
The app will show the times that the bus will be leaving Storthes Hall Park and the university so you can plan your journey – it takes around 15 to 20 minutes. The bus will go directly from the university to the accommodation, and will only stop at Morrisions and Lidl if you ring the bell on the bus.

The bus pass is only for the 398/399 buses and if you wish to use other buses to get out and about, you will need to either pay in cash, or by contactless card, and let the driver know where you want to go when you get on.
