NUS Card - Discount
Holders of a valid NUS card receive a 10% discount on single and day return fares. This offer excludes routes 577, 581 and 582. Student ID is required.
How do I prove I qualify for a discount?
Carousel Buses drivers may request proof of age for anyone asking for a child fare regardless of age, and will always need to see a photo-ID card for students over the age of 16 stating they are in full time education.
What proof of age/student identification is valid?
Due to the large number of different schemes in operation Carousel Buses urge all children 12 years of age and older and all students of any age to apply for an ISIC - International Student Identity Card. This is an internationally recognised student identification scheme and the best way to demonstrate eligibility for child fares or student fares on our buses. Please note the ISIC card must show a photograph of the holder to be valid for discount. Combined ISIC/NUS Extra cards are accepted for discount as long as they also show a photograph of the holder but NUS Extra cards without ISIC are not.
In addition to the ISIC card we will accept photo-ID issued by the following institutions providing it states the holder is a student:
Buckinghamshire College Group, Bucks New University (BNU), Brunel University, Uxbridge College
No other forms of student identification are valid for student discount on our services. Photo-ID proof of age cards from nationally recognised schemes such as the Citizencard will be accepted as proof of age for passengers under the age of 16 asking for child fares.

Special discounts are available to students of Buckinghamshire College Group.
