Bath Spa University Bus

Bath Spa University (Bath Spa Uni Bus)

We’ve re-branded the buses a striking navy blue colour and re-numbered the services U5 and U6. We’ve also refurbished the interiors and even installed free Wifi and USB charging points on all the Bath Spa Uni Bus services. So you can charge your phone or iPad and catch up on Facebook or Twitter, check out the news or plan a night out while on the move. Just search for ‘First Wifi’.

Services U5 and U6 are your best option for getting to Bath Spa University and back. On Service U5, there’s a bus at least every 10 minutes during the day and it runs until 2.40am six nights a week. Due to student feedback, we’ve increased the frequency on a Sunday daytime to every 30 minutes. Our service U6 runs every 30 minutes Monday to Friday during the daytime, and serves student accommodation at Twerton Mill, Charlton Court, Waterside Court and Windsor Bridge and we’ve added an extra evening journey to get you home after a hard day of studying.

And as we run so many of the bus services in Bath whether you’re going to university, the city centre, cinema, supermarket, train station or visiting friends we’ve got it covered with routes going all over the city. Our Bath uni year or term tickets offer you the best value for money and unlimited travel on all First buses in Bath Inner Zone.
