Stagecoach Bus Services
To keep you moving through the vacation, Stagecoach will continue to operate bus services to and from the University campus.
For the latest information and FAQs on travelling on Stagecoach buses during the Coronavirus please see the Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice and FAQs page on the Stagecoach website.
Stagecoach will be operating fewer bus services than they do during term-time, but a frequent service will still be provided.
- Service 1/1A will operate every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday daytimes but will not operate during evenings after around 7.00pm or on Sundays.
- Service 2/100 will continue to operate every 15 minutes Monday to Saturday daytimes, every 20 minutes after 7.00pm and every 30 minutes on Sundays.
- Service 4 will also operate as normal but Service 4X will not operate as these journeys are term-time only. Service 2X, 40, 41 and 42 journeys will operate as normal.
On the bank holidays of Friday 10th April and Monday 13th April Stagecoach will operate to timetables scheduled for Sundays.
Term time timetables will operate until Saturday 21st March, despite all classroom teaching finishing on Friday 13th March. ‘University Holidays’ timetables will therefore commence on Sunday 22nd March.
Full term time bus services will recommence from Sunday 19th April 2020.
