Hopper buses

Hopper bus parked on University Park campus

The University of Nottingham provides free hopper bus services that run between the main University Park Campus and Jubilee, Sutton Bonington and King's Meadow campuses, and the Royal Derby Hospital Centre.

The hopper buses now use a ‘tap-on’ system, so 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.

Staff and students travelling to Nottingham City Hospital are also able to travel free of charge on the Medilink and L12 services - simply show your University card. 

From 19 September 2019:

901 Sutton Bonington — additional connectivity has been added to Kegworth in the morning and evening peaks

902 King’s Meadow Campus — an on-request ‘set down’ stop will be added on Lenton Lane to facilitate connectivity to the Tram Network (note this is only on the KMC to UP section of the route)

903 Jubilee Campus — this route will no longer serve East Drive or the Arts Centre and will loop around University Park campus before exiting the North Entrance. This change will remove significant congestion to East Drive and also improve the reliability of the service by avoiding significant congestion in the Dunkirk area.

Enquiries

As of 5 August 2018, the hopper bus services are operated by Arriva Midlands.
