Bikes, buses and trains - everything you need to know about transport in Lancaster


One of the easiest ways to get between the University campus and Lancaster city is by bus. It takes only 15–20 minutes and buses stop every few minutes in the centre of campus.

The ticket offers unlimited bus travel on all services in the Lancaster area. For more information, visit the University bus travel page.
