changes to Unilink timetables from 24 September

Monday, September 18 2017

Please be aware that our Unilink bus service will switch to its University Term timetables from Sunday 24 September. Additionally, there will be some changes to some journeys to improve reliability. The main changes are listed below.

U1: Afternoon times are amended to reflect the growing traffic congestion in Portswood and Swaythling areas on Monday to Fridays. Following student feedback there will be an extra late bus every day at 0005 from Highfield to Central Station and also at 0030 from Central Station to Highfield and Eastleigh.

U2: U2B buses will follow a new route around Bassett Green from Lobelia Road turning right into Bassett Green Road, then Stoneham Lane (for City Gateway Halls), returning via Burgess Road to Highfield. There will now be more buses travelling to Chamberlain Halls.

U6: The 0745 U6C bus from General Hospital will leave earlier at 0740. The times of most afternoon buses are slightly amended to reflect continuing traffic congestion on Mondays to Fridays.

U9: Minor timing changes
