Do you require mobility access? Each campus has at least one bus for each route with wheelchair and mobility access. It's best to contact Campus Safety and Security Office before you travel so we can make sure a bus is available so you can leave uni on time and hassle free.

Shuttle bus FAQs

Where can I find a timetable for the shuttle bus on my campus?

A time table for each campus is located at the top of this page. The timetable changes at short notice, so please check this page regularly.

What time does the shuttle bus start and finish each day?

The Shuttle Bus Timetable lists the times the shuttle buses run. The commencing time is the time the first bus starts to drive the designated circuit at each Campus. The latest time is the time it arrives back at the Campus to finish for the day. Please refer to the shuttle bus timetable for specific running times for each campus.

Does the shuttle bus arrive at each stop at a particular time?

No. To maximise the number of seats available to passengers each day, the shuttle buses travel in a continuous loop between the stops. Depending on traffic conditions and size of a Campus route, it takes approximately 15-20 minutes for a bus to complete one loop. Please refer to the shuttle bus timetable above, to locate the stops for each campus. To track a particular shuttle bus, please view the Shuttle Tracker (opens in a new window).
