Welcome to Lincoln

Your freshers guide to catching the bus in our city whilst at University of Lincoln

Bus Stops Around Campus

There are many bus stops around the city including a handful around the campus. The Temporary Bus Station is just a couple of minutes walk from the edge of the campus. Tip: extend your arm when the bus is approaching to indicate to the driver that you would like to get on the bus, some drivers may not stop unless your arm is extended.

Lincoln Bus is the city's bus information website which helps 7 thousand passengers every month. We don't run any buses but we do provide independent advice and information on catching the bus in Lincoln including a Journey Planner and Service Updates.
