Student Metro Season Ticket

  • The Student Metro Season Ticket is available for all students to use in three different zones all day and is the most cost effective method for students who travel on the metro regularly. You can choose an annual ticket or a four weekly one. You need to apply for a FREE Season Tickets Pop card and then renew your ticket online or at any Metro station ticket machine.

Pop Pay As You Go (PAYG)

Since the introduction of the Pop Cards, University Smartcards can no longer be used to buy tickets and travel around the city on the Tyne and Wear Metro. Further information can be found on the Nexus website.
