Travel and Transport
NTU is fortunate to be located in a city that has an excellent public transport network. In addition to the city's own facilities, we've significantly invested in facilities for cyclists and those who choose to walk or run to the University. Find out more about sustainable travel options at NTU.
Travelling by bus
Our two main operators for colleagues and students are Nottingham City Transport (NCT), for all trips in and around the city and to Brackenhurst Campus, and Trent Barton for trips into the city from outer lying areas.
NCT runs the award-winning Go2 Uni 4 Bus Service which runs up to every seven minutes and is available for students, staff and members of the general public throughout term time, Monday to Friday. This service takes you to and from NTU's City Campus into the heart of the Clifton Campus in about 30 minutes. A night bus runs until 4:00am to provide safe student travel.
The Pathfinder Service 26 runs every 30 minutes from King Street in the City Centre, travelling to our Brackenhurst Campus. The service operates for the public and NTU students, staff and visitors 7 days per week all year round.
Students can purchase travel passes on all NCT buses at the beginning of the Academic Year to receive discounted offers. Colleagues also have the option of discounted travel passes through their staff benefits package. Find out more about NCT services.
Trent Barton buses connect cities and towns in the East Midlands with Nottingham. These include Derby, Mansfield, Bingham, Bakewell, Ilkeston, Burton and Sutton. Students can get discounts with the Student Mango Card, with 20% off single adult cash fares. Colleagues can make 15% savings using Mango through staff benefits.
