Rosso to support students managing their money with its new term ticket

3 January 2019

Now the New Year party season is over, stretching that under-pressure bank balance through the next few months is always a challenge for hard-pressed students – but Transdev's Rosso has the answer!

The firm behind the popular Red 4 bus service is launching a money-saving student ticket just in time for the start of term, offering unlimited travel on all of its buses within Greater Manchester – including its routes in Ramsbottom. Bury, Rochdale and more – at a fixed low price.

Rosso’s new GM Saver Student Term Ticket can be used on all Rosso buses within Greater Manchester, offering thrifty academics a chance to travel more for less across the region.

It also offers the lowest priced student travel on the route of the Red 4, which links Ramsbottom with Bury every 15 minutes, making travel to Bury College easy as well as cheap, just in time for the start of the new term.

Rosso’s Operations Manager, Anthony Fiocca says: “Many of us remember the struggle to make student finances stretch across the first few months of the year. No sooner has the party season across Christmas and the New Year ended then it’s back to college, with students needing to watch every penny until the Spring.

“That’s why we’re offering the cheapest deal to take students to college – and a whole lot more besides across the area. Bus travel offers a safe, environmentally friendly and low cost way for students to get around, and it certainly gets an “A Star” for value!”

Rosso’s GM Saver Student Term ticket is valid on all its services in the Greater Manchester ticket zone, which includes Ramsbottom, Bury, Rochdale, Littleborough, Radcliffe and Bolton, from Monday 7 January to Friday 5 April inclusive.

The ticket costs £95, giving significant savings over the cost of buying bus tickets on the day of travel, plus the flexibility and value of being able to use any Rosso bus at any time within the area.

It’s available from now until the end of January, from the free to download Transdev Go app. Just search Transdev Go on the App store or Google Play.
