The U5 UNIBUS route from Lansdowne Plaza to University Talbot Campus is to be withdrawn at the end of the 2016-17 term. The last day of service will be Friday 25th May.
The U5 was introduced in September 2017 as a 1 year pilot service. Bournemouth University has reviewed customer numbers and has decided to discontinue the service. Working closely with the university, UNIBUS will concentrate on improving the ever-growing high-frequency U1 which serves the majority of the U5 route
The U1 will still continue to run. Students and staff who used the U5 service can catch the U1 from the KFC stop on Holdenhurst Road for the remainder of the academic year and beyond into future academic years.
2018/19 UNIBUS fares will remain the same as in 2017/18.
