With effect from Sunday 5 August Arriva Midlands will be taking over the running of the University Hopper Bus service. The new partnership will see new double decker buses on all routes (with the exception of King’s Meadow Campus), with all buses equipped with cycle racks, internal screens and wifi.
The new buses will feature Euro6 engines as well as stop/start technology to improve fuel efficiency and reduce vehicle emissions. All of the buses will have bike racks on them and will have Eduroam Wi-Fi with charge points for mobile phones and tablets.
To better understand travel patterns we will be introducing University Card swiping on to the buses, so please have your University Card to hand when travelling!
The following changes will take place to the hopper bus timetables:

As previously announced, a long-term agreement has also been reached for staff and students to travel for free on the Medi-link and L12 services, with a dedicated 8.15am Medi-link service running from University Park directly to City Hospital during term time.
