How much is the Unibus?


Derby students who live in halls get FREE unlimited Unibus travel.

People in halls get FREE unlimited Unibus travel for the year but others have to pay the normal rate which is £1.70 for a single trip or £10 for 10 trips. So living in halls automatically gives you a significant saving on transport. 

The Unibus provides a great service for everyone that links all the University of Derby sites, the main halls of residence, Derby city centre, Markeaton Park Park and Ride, Derby train station, supermarkets and the Royal Derby Hospital.

The Markeaton shuttle bus

The No.4 is a service for staff and students who travel between Kedleston Road and Markeaton Street/Britannia Mill. It runs all year and calls at the Markeaton Park Park and Ride during undergraduate teaching weeks.  The Shuttle is a new accessible low floor bus.

Unibus service 5 and 6

The No. 5 bus route serves the University, Markeaton Park Park and Ride (term time only), Ashbourne Road, Derby city centre, Uttoxeter New Road and the Royal Derby Hospital. The No.5 route has new accessible low floor buses that run half hourly in term time and slightly less frequently out of term time.

The No.6 connects the Kedleston Road site with halls, the city centre and the train station. It runs every 10 minutes in term time and less frequently outside of term time.
