Travel around the UK from the heart of campus

Megabus operate daily scheduled coach services out of the Underpass to destinations in both England and Scotland.

You're just one coach ride away from the centre of campus to Preston, Manchester, Birmingham, London, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen. Online booking is required via Megabus.

Due to COVID-19, Megabus have temporarily suspended coach services from Lancaster University from Monday 11th January 2021 until further notice. You can find out more on the Megabus website or on the COVID Travel Advice page. 

Coach journeys typically take longer than the train but can offer excellent value for money.
