Hopper bus update: September 2020


September 15th, 2020

From Thursday 17 September, the University will be increasing our Hopper Bus service.

We have had to change many of our services to be able to continue to support some of our more remote locations, and we would encourage staff and students to instead use active travel to make short journeys where appropriate.

Travelling by bus is a little different right now, however all our buses are COVID-19 secure and safe to travel on. They are running at reduced capacity to support social distancing with one person per row of two seats and face coverings must be worn, exceptions apply.

Please note when a bus has reached capacity it won’t stop at any stops unless passengers wish to alight.

Key changes to services include:

901 – Sutton Bonington Service

  • Interim stops have been removed – the service will only stop at the following stops:
    • East Drive
    • Clifton, Park and Ride
    • Sutton Bonington Campus
  • A 901k service has been introduced to provide connectivity to Kegworth
  • We have increased frequency of service to every 15 mins at peak times during the day

902 – King’s Meadow Services

  • Continues to be suspended

903 – Jubilee Campus

  • Saturday service has been suspended
  • Monday to Friday services run on a 30 min frequency
  • A more direct route in place – the route no longer serves Beeston lane
  • The service will only serve the following stops:
    • Jubilee Campus, The Exchange
    • University Park, George Green Library
    • University Park, East Drive
    • Jubilee Campus, Innovation Park

  • This service will no longer serve East Drive
  • This service will only serve the following stops:
    • University Park, Union Shop (the stop behind the Portland building)

Passenger behaviour and travel patterns will continue to be monitored and the services will be reviewed on a regular basis in conjunction with faculties.
