Our TravelSmart plan is reducing reliance on car use and helping to increase bus use, cycling and walking to campus.

Sustainable travel

Whether you are a student, staff or visitor there are lots of great travel options to travel get to the university. The three main campuses of Frenchay, Glenside and City Campus are all well served by buses from across the city and beyond and well connected to cycling and walking paths.

Frenchay Campus is less than 1 mile from both Bristol Parkway and Filton Abbeywood train stations and our North Entrance bus stop links to the National Coach network. There is a dedicated car share car park for those with permits, and we are increasing our network of electric charging points and electric pool cars for staff and visitors.

Strong sustainability commitments alongside planning regulations and limited parking spaces require the University to;

  • reduce reliance on single occupancy vehicles
  • reduce carbon emissions for travel to Frenchay Campus
  • increase the use of sustainable travel options

See our sustainability section for more details on our travel targets and how we are performing against them.
