National Express has launched a brand new coach service from The University of Bristol to London. The coaches run directly from the University’s Stoke Bishop campus which houses 2,500 freshers.
Comprising six outbound and eight return journeys, the new service opens up a direct transport link to London for freshers as well as other students, staff and nearby local residents. The new service from Stoke Bishop compliments National Express’ existing University of Bristol service.
For the first three months a ticket to the capital starts at £5, and with a journey time of just under three hours the service is ideal for a day out or sightseeing trips.
Tom Stables, National Express UK Coach Managing Director said: “Freshers week is one of the highlights of university, so we are thrilled to be able to add to that experience by opening this new service that opens up a fast, direct and affordable transport link to the capital.”
Patrick Finch, the University’s Bursar and Director of Estates said: “The University has a well established and successful travel plan. I am excited about our partnership with National Express and hope that the service will prove to be a great success.”
Students can also benefit from the Young Persons Coachcard, entitling them to a third off their coach journeys and 10% off travel to top student events such as Glastonbury and Wembley football matches.
