Recently, the Bucharest Transport Company (STB) announced that, through the YOUth TB application, students at all faculties in Bucharest can generate subscriptions for the services offered by the transport operator.
Thus, according to the STB announcement, students no longer need a student ID card or the cards that the officials at the STB counters used to issue, in order to be able to travel with a 50% discount on trams, buses and trolleybuses, as well as on pre-city lines from the Bucharest-Ilfov metropolitan area. The process of generating subscriptions can now be done online, based on the verification of the data available in the Single Registration Register.
We specify that, for the moment, the facility is available to all students at the University of Bucharest, with the exception of those enrolled in the first year in the academic year 2022-2023, bachelor’s degree and master’s degree. This is due to the fact that students enrolled in the first year have not yet been added to the database of the Single Matriculation Register of the Ministry of Education.
Until this process is completed, students who are enrolled in their first year in the academic year 2022-2023 can obtain STB discounted/free of charge subscriptions by presenting their student ID at any of the STB card Issuing Points in Bucharest. Student IDs can be picked up from the secretariats of the 19 faculties of the University of Bucharest, which are in continuous dialogue with the students.
As soon as the process of adding all students to the database of the Single Matriculation Register will be completed, the facility to obtain discounted/free STB subscriptions online will also be available for those enrolled in the first year in the academic year 2022-2023.
Discounted/free STB subscriptions for students, just a click away
The steps a student needs to follow to get the 50% discount on transport without a student card and ID, directly in the app, are the same as described by STB in the video tutorial for students available below.
The Youth TB platform allows you to obtain metropolitan season tickets from the Bucharest – Ilfov area valid during the school/university year, on all public transport lines, regardless of the transport operator, according to the legislation in force.
The YOUth TB app can be downloaded from both the AppStore here and GooglePlay here.
