24 hour buses to & from the University!
Our green Unibus runs between Canterbury City and Canterbury campus (via Canterbury East Rail Station) up to every 8 minutes and is powered by biofuel made from used cooking oil and waste lard - convenient for you and environmentally friendly too! Unibuses even have free WiFi!
The new Nite Unibus starts on 21 September 2014 meaning buses now run throughout the night and into the early hours! Nite Unibus runs Monday to Saturday terms times and follows a slightly different route to Unibus so check out the map for details.
Triangle buses also run between city and campus (and continue on to Whitstable, Sturry and Herne Bay). Triangles start very early in the morning so there are buses around the clock to take you to Uni!
For buses to Canterbury West Station, Hales Place and Sturry Road, take a look at the route 26 timetable.

Take full advantage of 24hr buses with a Unirider
Unirider is the essential, low-cost bus ticket exclusively for University of Kent students. It allows unlimited travel on all our buses in Kent and East Sussex, including the new nite Unibus, from as little as £4.40 a week that's 62p per day*!
Spring & summer term ticket now available!
If you only travel occasionally you can buy a daily or weekly ticket from the bus driver for travel between the University and the city centre on Unibus and Triangle buses, and on route 26 to Hales Place and Sturry Road.
For 1 day's travel, ask for a Uniday ticket- £2.80
For 7 days' travel, ask for a Uniweek ticket- £8.00
Remember - these tickets are restricted to certain routes and an academic year Unirider works out at less than £4.40* a week so a Unirider could still be the best value option even if you are a part-time student.
*Academic year ticket purchased at the special offer price of £170. Valid for 39 weeks (275 days).
All prices correct from 21 September 2014.
