Route U is the University bus for everyone and is the replacement for the Uni4 service. It is subsidised by the University of Cambridge with assistance from the North West Cambridge Development.
A £2 flat fare applies and University card holders pay just £1 for a single journey. Unlimited travel is just £3 a day and £10 a week. All tickets are available from the driver (cash only please). Mobile phone ticketing is now available – click here
A number of improvements have been made to the service since becoming the Universal. These include:
- 23 July 2016 – operating via Cambridge Railway Station, improved frequency up to every 15 minutes and a new Saturday service
- 5 December 2016 – using the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway between Cambridge Railway Station and Cambridge Biomedical Campus, brand new high-specification buses and a later journey on Saturdays
- 8 September 2017 – extended to serve Eddington instead of Madingley Road Park and Ride. Click here to download the new timetable. Passengers who park at the park and ride site can use the gate in the north east corner of the car park to reach the new bus stops on Eddington Avenue.Click here to view a diagram showing the location of the alternative stops
