University of Bristol (Bristol Unibus)
Welcome to Bristol Unibus.
You've already made a great choice of university and city to live in, so now you'll want to make the most of it while you're here. Our fantastic network of buses can help you do this by getting you all around Bristol whether you're travelling to lectures, your halls, the shops, pubs, clubs or even the train station for those weekends back home. And the best news is that University of Bristol students get great deals on all our tickets.
As Bristol Unibus is part of the First Bus network you can choose from two options of tickets to buy depending on where you need to travel:
Bristol Unibus Services only (services U1, 3, 4, 9 and 72). If you're in halls this is the ticket you get included with your accommodation. It gives you frequent services to the University campus plus access to places such as the City Centre and Temple Meads Station. Giving you unlimited travel on these services:
Service U1 - Travel on entire route, term times only
Service 3 - Travel between Bristol City Centre and Coombe Lane bus stop only, throughout the uni year
Service 4 - Travel between Bristol City Centre and The Avenue bus stop only, throughout the uni year
Service 9 - Travel on entire route, throughout the uni year
Service 72 - Travel between Bristol Temple Meads and Cotham Hill bus stop only, throughout the uni year
This ticket is perfect for you to buy if you don't get the ticket included with your accommodation but only need to travel in the city centre and campus area.
Unlimited travel on all First buses in Bristol Inner Zone (includes all Unibus services plus around 50 others). With this option you can literally get all over Bristol and hop on and off as many buses as you like for the duration of your ticket - whether it's term time or not - and really make the most of what Bristol has to offer. If you live or work in another part of the city or intend to visit people and places elsewhere then this ticket will give you the best value for money. If you live in halls and got Option 1 included with your accommodation but like the idea of travelling further, you can upgrade your ticket for just £50 to include Option 2.
With both options you can choose how long you want to travel for example by buying a month at a time or getting our best value Uni Year tickets. Check out the Unibus tickets page for all the details and prices. If you need to know more about our services and where they go before making your decision see our Unibus services page.
University of Bristol staff can also benefit from some great offers which can all be seen here.
