Bath Spa University (Bath Spa Uni Bus)
Our Bath Spa Uni Bus services are numbered U5 and U6. They are a striking navy blue colour with refurbished interiors plus free Wifi and USB charging points. So you can charge your phone or iPad and catch up on Facebook or Twitter, check out the news or plan a night out while on the move. Just search for 'First Wifi'.
Services U5 and U6 are your best option for getting to Bath Spa University and back. During term time on Service U5, there's a bus at least every 15 minutes during the day and in the evening every 30 minutes until 3.10am six nights a week.
In term time the U6 runs up to every 20 minutes during the daytime. This means more buses for those of you who live in student accommodation at Twerton Mill, Charlton Court, Waterside Court and Windsor Bridge.
And as we run so many of the bus services in Bath whether you're going to university, the city centre, cinema, supermarket, train station or visiting friends we've got it covered with routes going all over the city. Our Bath uni year or term tickets offer you the best value for money and unlimited travel on all First buses in Bath Inner Zone.
During the holiday periods the U5 continues to run but at a reduced frequency due to fewer people needing to travel.
|Monday to Friday||12 minutes (peak times) 15 minutes (daytime) 30 minutes (evening)|
|Saturday||15 minutes (daytime) 30 minutes (evening)|
|Sunday||30 minutes (daytime) 60 minutes (evening)|
|Monday to Friday||20 minutes (daytime) no evening service|
Frequencies shown are for term times.
Service 701: Sion Hill - Lower Bristol Road
Students who buy academic year or term tickets also get travel on the Service 701 (not operated by First) included for free - perfect if you're studying at the Sion Hill Campus.
We've got a fantastic range of student tickets meaning there is something to suit your needs however often you use the bus. All students get 30% off our adult season ticket prices with valid student photo ID but we've got some even better deals specifically for Bath Spa University students.
