New arrival in Arrivals Square


📥  Public transport

The new Arrivals Square building is now complete and in operation.

The expansion and extensive refurbishment has created a new welcome point, staffed by Steve King, the University’s Transport Manager, where you can tap into his detailed knowledge of local bus and train services, including up to date arrival and departure times.

Alongside Steve are three new digital displays which show the scheduled arrival time of every campus bus.

90% of the U1 service now has GPS locators and the 20 service is fully equipped, with the U18, X18 and U10 currently upgrading, so the displays can continually update with the most accurate arrival times.

The building also boasts new washrooms, with a parent and baby room and disabled accessible facility alongside a standard washroom, all of which are unisex.

Steve will be available 8am to 6:30pm every weekday, except Tuesday and Wednesday when it is 2:30-6:30pm, so pop over to see him in his new home and get the very latest local travel news in person.

Steve Egan, Vice-President (Implementation), said: “It’s great to see further development of the travel services to campus to complement the increased frequency of buses and 24/7 service on the U1.

“Travelling between campus and the City has dramatically improved, thanks to a lot of hard work by colleagues and our former Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kevin Edge.

“This is particularly important as we increase our presence at Manvers Street, and something I can appreciate personally as a regular bus user.”
