Hopper bus services

Travelling to and from our libraries using the university's free hopper buses


Trial of evening 906 hopper bus to Beeston and Lenton

A free evening hopper bus service is being trialled which will stop at libraries and other key locations on both University Park and Jubilee campuses. 

Latest news

Due to the service's popularity, the trial has now been extended to run throughout the summer term. 

The service will end for the spring term on Thursday 28 March and will restart for the summer term on Monday 29 April.

There will be no service on the two May Bank Holiday dates of Monday 6 May and Monday 27 May. 

How do I use the hopper?

The hopper will start at George Green Library and will leave every hour from 7.30pm - 10.30pm and will call at a number of bus stops across University Park, Jubilee Campus, Lenton and Beeston including:

  • University Park (George Green Library, Hallward Library, Conference Centre and West Entrance stops)
  • Jubilee Campus (The Exchange)
  • Ilkeston Road (Faraday Road and Albert Grove stops)
  • Derby Road (Canning Circus and Savoy Cinema stops)
  • Humber Road
  • Middle Street (Jessamine Court stop)

If you have your University Card with you, please tap the card reader machine next to the driver. If you don’t have a card, the driver will manually record your journey. This will allow the team to review usage during the trial period.

We encourage students on campus in the evenings to try using the bus service during the trial and to share their feedback.

For students based at Sutton Bonington, the 901 hopper bus runs from University Park to Clifton, Sutton Bonington Campus and Kegworth throughout the evening with the last bus leaving just after midnight.
