The University has announced that there will be two new transport links to and from the new campus in Lanarkshire. Transport operator, First Bus, will launch regular bus services between Hamilton International Technology Park – where the campus is located – to Hamilton and East Kilbride Bus Stations.
The service will be available to all students, staff and the public from 03 September 2018, providing a fast, reliable, frequent and environmentally friendly travel option for commuters.
Service UW1 will operate every 10 minutes between Hamilton Bus Station, Hamilton West and the Lanarkshire campus, providing a link with most other bus and rail services in the area.
Service UW2 will provide a direct service between East Kilbride Bus Station and the new campus.
Both services will be on UWS branded double-decker buses with additional features including leather seats with built-in USB ports and free wi-fi. A fantastic range of money-saving fares will be available.
The new services represent a significant milestone for the University as we prepare to welcome the first cohort of students to our new £110 million campus in September.
The campus – with its technology-rich, innovative learning and social spaces – will be at the forefront of modern learning environments and significantly enriches the educational journey of the 4,000 students and 300 staff who will attend there. Look out for further notices across the University when full bus timetables are confirmed.
