The Oadby Shuttle Bus- everything you need to know
NEW Oadby Shuttle Bus – Term One Trial
To help you get to campus, the University is trialling a new shuttle bus service during the first term, starting September 2018. This is a direct response to student feedback asking for a cheaper alternative to the public bus service currently available via Arriva.
The new trial shuttle service will be provided by Centrebus and will run between Oadby Student Village and the main University campus from Monday to Friday, 7am – 8pm. A ticket for the shuttle bus for the whole of term one can be purchased online at shop.le.ac.uk for £85. There are no pay as you go options for this service, you will need a term one ticket to use the bus. The trial will pick up and collect from one bus stop on Manor Road outside Wighton House.
Alternative transport options
Walking to main campus takes about 30-40 minutes, depending on how fast you walk!
Cycling to campus is easy, with dedicated bike racks in Oadby Student Village and a large underground secure bike store on main campus. The easiest route is to follow the cycle lanes via London Road.
The Arriva Bus (U1/U2/U3) is a term time public service run by Arriva which offers various ticket options, including pay as you go. This service, along with the 31 run into the City Centre and are available at weekends.
We want your feedback
Please note that this is a trial service and so we would like to get your feedback on the bus throughout the trial. It also means that the service is subject to change and we want your feedback. We will be holding focus groups and asking for feedback via surveys so please make sure you get involved and tell us what you think. At the moment there is no guarantee that the service will continue into term two, but we will keep you updated on what options are available.
Please email any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
