What is Easyrider?

It is a convenient, prepaid smart travel card which provides UNLIMITED all day travel, including late night buses, across the NCT network* at prices cheaper than on bus cash tickets.

These cards can be managed and renewed by phone, online or at the NCT Travel Centre in the Old Market Square.

We offer two main types of Easyrider card – Everyday and Anyday – to help customers save money if they travel frequently or just now and again. We offer 15% discounts to students and excellent discounts for Under 19s too!
