Bournemouth University Key Card

Welcome to the key

For Students and Staff at Bournemouth University and Arts University Bournemouth.

The key is our brand new smartcard, and is a great way of buying and using tickets to travel on our buses. It is delivered direct to your University campus, and makes your journey even easier.

Non BU staff members or students check out for other great offers.

And don’t worry if you lose your key. We can stop it instantly so you don’t lose your tickets and send you a replacement.
