For help with getting started, see the step by step guide below.

2...From the First Travel Centre on Castle Meadow

Just take along your CCN student ID or offer letter when you go in to get your ticket.  We're open Monday - Friday 0930 to 1330 and 1430 to 1630.

It’s really easy to buy your City College Norwich ticket using our FREE First Bus App.  Just follow the simple steps below and you’ll be ready to tap, show & go!

1) Download the app from your app store

Apple store travel app link Android store travel app link

2) Create an account by entering some simple details.  You’ll need to register this to your City College email address in order to let us know that you’re a student at the college and that you can have access to these great prices.

If you don’t have this yet then it’s fine to use your normal email address to start with but you will have to change it to and confirm your CCN address within 30 days to keep your ticket active.

Unfortunately, if for any reason you can’t confirm your email address in this time your ticket will be cancelled and you will be charged the full price for the equivalent Adult FirstMonth ticket plus an admin fee.

3) Select the area called ‘Eastern Counties Communities’ from the list available.  Then select ‘City College Norwich’...Easton College students should also choose the City College Norwich option.

4) Choose and buy your ticket following the simple steps within the app.  A parent or carer can also buy the ticket for you at this stage, using their credit or debit card.

5) When you’ve purchased your ticket it will appear in your ‘Ticket Wallet’.  Then, simply open the app, open the wallet, tap on the ticket and show the screen to the driver every time you get on the bus.

You can download a 6 step guide to buying tickets on the First Bus App here!  Just don't forget to include the steps above to buy your exclusive CCN ticket.

A couple of things we should mention...

If you upgrade to the latest snazzy phone at any time whilst your ticket is still valid then we can move your ticket to your new phone.  Just download the app onto the new device and the rest is automatic.  Of course, the same applies if you lose your phone - we can transfer it to your replacement in a matter of seconds.

Oh, and just so that you know…if your phone is out of battery, broken, left at home or lost, you’ll have to buy a ticket from the driver to get on the bus.
