University of Bath (Bath Uni Bus)
You probably already know that Bath is a great city to be a student in. So why not make the most of this beautiful city by jumping on our buses and exploring it. We've got great services to the University of Bath plus a network of buses that go pretty much everywhere else you'll need to go.
Bath Uni Bus Service U1 is your best option for getting between the University of Bath, Oldfield Park and the City Centre. With a bus at least every 6 minutes during the day and services running 24/7 (perfect for a night out or a long library session) its your perfect choice for your time in Bath.
Our Bath Uni Bus U2 service also runs up to every 15 minutes Monday to Friday during the peak (and every 20 minutes off peak) term time providing a direct service to Combe Down, Southdown, Oldfield Park and the University of Bath with services running till 10pm.
And as we run over 20 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.
We want to transport you in style so we have 8 shiny double decker buses on our U1 service, featuring free WiFi, USB charging points and infotainment screens with the latest news updates. We also have a fleet of queue busting bendy buses at peak times to get you to uni on time, even when demands at its highest.
