Buses and coaches

University shuttle bus

If people take the bus rather than drive in their individual cars then we all benefit from cleaner air, buses have the common conception of dirty exhausts.

The important consideration is that the per-mile emissions are significantly lower for bus travel than for car travel. This occurs because of a simple reason, the bus carries more people.

Other benefits also follow. If we used the bus, then less parking spaces would need to be developed and maintained. This leads to savings in public money or your employers money. Fewer car parks also means less developed land and that the waterways have less strain on them in dealing with storm run-off. It all leads to reduced congestion.

Local buses

There is a good local bus service and access to the national bus network if you need to get away on the cheap. Below is a selection of local services.


New bus service between Nottingham and Loughborough University. It in part replaces the old Arriva 99 service that ran between Nottingham and Coalville. The service takes 45 minutes from Nottingham Broadmarsh to the University (stopping both at Cayley Gates and near the West entrance to the university), and for regular travellers costs only £15 a week.
