Cheaper Bus Passes for students

What's happened?

If you're trying to get around Colchester without a car, it can be annoying. If you're a student you often don't have much choice. We've been working with First Buses for a while now to get the best deal for students, and are happy to announce something really big. The Essex-wide bus pass for students has been reduced from £995 to £500.
