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 service - simply show your University card. 

Start of Session - Hopper bus services

To support Welcome and the phased return to campus, from 13 September we will return to operating a full fleet of hopper services, in effect we will be returning to running the pre-pandemic services. New timetables can be found below.

Connectivity to City hospital will continue to be provided by staff and students being able to travel on the medi-link services as well as a dedicated East Drive to City hospital Medi-Link service operating at 8:15 am Monday to Friday.

In line with University guidance and public transport operators we shall be removing social distancing measure on the buses and the wearing of face coverings will no longer be mandatory, but we encourage passengers to wear a face covering whilst travelling on our services and consider other users of the services.

We will continue to review service provision in conjunction with faculties and the operator.

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