Our Future Campus - Transport and Mobility

We’re proud to be working with Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) and partners in a collaborative two-year project titled: 'Choose Your Way Warwick'. Our campus is becoming a living lab, so we can test out new mobility ideas, approaches and technologies that could help to address the climate emergency.

What is 'Choose your way Warwick' about?

'Choose your way Warwick' is what we're calling our two-year partnership with TfWM, in which we will be:

  • Trialling new mobility ideas, approaches and technologies that could reduce car emissions.
  • Helping inform how we might enable our campus, local and ultimately worldwide communities to be cleaner, more sustainable and lead healthier lives.
  • Helping to address the climate emergency.

How can you help create a greener future?

This is your chance to experience the future of sustainable transport and mobility. By getting involved and trying out new modes of transport, you'll be helping to inform research and innovation, as well as contributing towards realising a better world for future generations.

Informing policy

The Future Transport Showcase will help inform policy and innovation, including how our campus e-scooter trial might change UK legislation.

Get involved

Voi e-scooters

Students | Staff | Community

We now have e-scooters for you to try out around campus. To use them, you just need to download the Voi app, create an account and choose how you'd like to pay. Why not give these a try instead of driving the next time you need to nip to Tesco?

Car Club rental scheme

Students | Staff | Community

Our car club scheme enables you to hire a hybrid vehicle to travel off campus on university business trips. For example, if you need to attend client meetings or travel to teach at the University Hospital, you can book to use these cars, at no cost to you.

Demand Response Transport Service (DRT)

Students | Staff | Community

A new service called 'West Midlands On Demand' will launch in April. It's a cross between a taxi and a bus. After you insert a pickup and drop-off location, you’ll be matched with other passengers heading in the same direction.

Earn rewards with 'Choose your way Warwick'

Students | Staff

Our Choose your way Warwick app will soon launch. You'll be able to log in with your university credentials and start earning rewards like Amazon or Currys/PC World vouchers, for using either active or sustainable transport to, from and around campus.

Subsidised bus service

Students | Staff | Community

We've launched a new bus service with National Express to help our staff and students commute to the main campus more easily, as it connects campus to the City Centre, Eastern Green, Tile Hill railway station and Cannon Park shops. All you need to do is show your ID card and your fare will be subsidised to £1.

Tandem taxi bus service

Students | Staff | Community

A new tandem taxi service, which works like a shared shuttle, will soon launch. It’ll connect Gibbet Hill, Leamington and Wellesbourne campus and be available from 7.00am – 10.00pm Monday – Friday, costing £3.00 each way.

To use it, you just need to download the app and book your place at least 1 hour ahead of your journey. Make sure you register with the route code UW21.

Increased pedestrian and cycling space

Students | Staff | Community

Some areas on campus have now become pedestrianised to help make walking and cycling safer and more convenient for our campus community.

This also helps us to manage our campus traffic and air pollution. See the changes on our new campus map.

Cycling

Students | Staff | Community

There are many cycling routes you can take to get to campus. If you don't have a bike, you can join our cycle to work scheme and hire a bike or an e-bike. Our Unicycles are also available to hire to easily travel across campus throughout the day.

Cycling consultations are happening locally, which you can get involved with if you're interested in the development of cycling routes.

Cashless car parking

Students | Staff | Community

We will invest in our car parking permit and "Pay as you go" systems to help improve the customer service experience.

Change in use of car parks

Students | Staff | Community

The usage of some car parks has now changed in response to demand.

Please see our updated car parking map to see which are available to you.
