    How to get from Parra. Station to UWS via bus.

    So I'm a first year, and I hardly ever take public transport.

    So how do I get from Parra. bus interchange to the campus site? What ticket do I purchase? What do I say to the ticket vendor? Do I ask for a return-ticket-thingy? lol.

    lol, I'm so useless, but I'm getting really anxious about this. Haha.

    Peace.

    hey mate.

    Go to the newsagency next to the station and order a t-way ten my bus 2 concession - $14.
    This is useful for up to 10 rides on the bus.

    Then go upstairs on the side that is OPPOSITE max brenner and nandos and wait at the A2 STAND.
    You can then catch the M52, or the 520,521,522,523 or 524 bus to uws parramatta.
    The tickets are all PRE PAID so you must buy it at the newsagency before you step onto the bus.

    sorry if this is a stupid question, but when you say 10 bus rides do you mean 10 bus stops or that it can be used ten different times when catching a bus? im really new at this and my friend said his ticket was only usable for 10 bus stops, however im not sure which ticket he bought. i presume by the word 'rides' you mean 10 individual bus rides, but im asking just to be sure

    Instead of purchasing a bus ticket from the newsagent, if you also catch the train (or another bus), you might want to look into buying a MyMulti weekly. Depending on where you are coming from, this ticket will cost between $21.50 and $30, and allows of unlimited use of buses, trains, trams and ferries in Sydney.

    i forgot tbh but u need a prepay ticket iirc so when u go get one (from any of the vendors nearby i.e. like the newsagents down the stairs) you can just say a pre-pay ticket to uws parra and they will give you the right one
