METRIDER 2019/20


If you're aged 16 - 21, you're entitled to make a great saving on the University’s MetRider bus service.
The University has partnered with Cardiff Bus and the Welsh Government, and is now able to offer the MyTravelPass discount (funded by Welsh Government), off the standard price of a MetRider ticket!

For £180*, you’ll get unlimited access to all MetRider services throughout the full academic year (7 days a week).

That's not all, your ticket will also give you unlimited access to all of the Cardiff Bus service network over the same period!
That’s the equivalent of £4 a week (or 57p / day) for unlimited travel around the City.

The ticket will be available for purchase from Monday 12th August 2019. Just click here or the Apply Now button

Cardiff Metropolitan University is really proud to be supporting the MyTravelPass scheme as it will benefit thousands of our students and help support our aim of reducing the dependency on cars to travel to campus.

*The MetRider annual pass is £270 per annum before the MyTravelPass discount is applied

When your pass is ready for collection, you will be notified. Met Rider passes can be collected from Cyncoed or Llandaff Print Studio.

​A great capital city​

Cardiff is hugely geared up for catering for its many students and ensuring they love the capital city as much as its locals do.

Discover what Student Life is like!

Cardiff is a fantastic capital with so many plus points – including how close suburbs, visitor attractions,

​Cardiff Bay, the Vale coast and seaside and nightlife venues are to one another – and how easy it is to get around. ​Cardiff Bus routes mean you can take in all of these in a single day – or work your way around at a more leisurely pace during your time here. Your Met Rider pass opens up all these routes to you.

Parking in Cardiff can sometimes be tricky, meaning the Rider is a great way to get directly from halls to campus and students residential areas as well as around town for shopping or a night out.​
