New campus shuttle bus service from 7 January 2013

Following a successful trial of a Shuttle Bus Service to the Student Post Room at Westwood campus we are pleased to announce that the service is being extended to and will include the Gibbet Hill site from Monday 7 January 2013.

The new Campus Shuttle Bus Service will provide a regular transport link with many parts of the campus and offer staff and students a flexible and convenient service to travel between distant locations. A new timetable and route has been developed for the free service aimed at providing a regular 30 minute service between 08:15 and 18:50 from Monday to Friday.

Ken Sloan – Registrar and Chief Operating Officer said:

"The University recognises the need for a flexible alternative to parking at Gibbet Hill now that staff are moving over from Wellesbourne. Furthermore, the construction of the MCBB building necessitated the removal of a number of parking spaces, which reduced the availability of parking for staff and visitors. I am, therefore, pleased to announce the start of a 6 month pilot Shuttle Bus service between Gibbet Hill and Central Campus. This means staff should now be able to park on Central Campus and travel to Gibbet Hill and back relatively quickly and conveniently. We will be assessing the effectiveness of the service, periodically, to consider if it is worthwhile."

The new service will be reviewed after a 6 month trial period on 31 July 2013 and depending on its use and effectiveness, it may continue to operate in the next academic year.

Details of the route, timetable and stops for the New Shuttle Bus Service are as follows:
