• BROOKESbus Service Changes

    From 20th May 2019, changes will be made to your BROOKESbus services.

Timetable and route changes

BROOKESbusU1

During Vacation periods, no changes will be made to your Monday-Friday and Sunday BROOKESbusU1 timetables. On Vacation Saturdays, the BROOKESbusU1 frequency will be reduced to operate every 45 minutes during the day, however, the Vacation Saturday evening times will be unchanged. The late night Vacation NU1 services on Friday and Saturday evenings will also be unchanged.

During Semester periods, there will be a reduction in the Monday-Friday BROOKESbusU1 morning peak frequency due to the gradual relocation of activity from the Wheatley Campus. From 09:00 hrs and throughout the remainder of the day, there will be no further changes to the Semester Monday-Friday BROOKESbusU1 service.

Your Semester BROOKESbusU1 services will also operate up to every 45 minutes at the weekends. There will be no changes to the late night Semester Friday and Saturday NU1 journeys, but the late night Semester NU1 service on Wednesday will sadly be withdrawn.

BROOKESbusU5

During Vacation periods, no changes will be made to your Monday-Friday daytime BROOKESbusU5 timetables. On Vacation, BROOKESbusU5 Monday-Friday evening and weekend journeys will terminate at the Gipsy Lane Campus and no longer serve Marston Road.

During Semester periods, there will be an increase in the Monday-Friday BROOKESbusU5 morning peak frequency to reflect the increased student residency along the Hollow Way corridor. The remainder of the daytime Semester BROOKESbusU5 timetable will be unchanged. During Semester, Monday-Friday evening and weekend BROOKESbusU5 journeys will terminate at the Gipsy Lane Campus and no longer serve Marston Road.

Your late night Friday and Saturday NU5 journeys will terminate at the Gipsy Lane Campus and won’t serve stops B2 or B5. Timings have been adjusted to also run hourly. Unfortunately, late night Wednesday NU5 service will be withdrawn.

The timetables are now available to view online (see below)!
