Bus Excursions and Day Trips
The USW1World trips programme organises excursions and day trips, some by coach, some by train or other transport methods, throughout the year. These are free, but the costs are kept at a minimum. If you’d like to go on an outing and be social, why not go along?
The Students’ Union usually offers a bus service for Freshers’ Fair, and sometimes buses for club nights.
Supermarket Shuttle Buses
Several supermarkets offer free bus services which are not affiliated to the University but may be useful to students.
- The bus operator N.A.T. Group lists these free services online by region on the N.A.T. Bus Network pages.
- Look for the ASDA Free Bus, Sainsbury Free Bus or Tesco Free Bus in your area.
- These tend to be listed near the bottom of the page! The listing is alphabetical and these bus lines don’t have a number.
- Free bus to Tesco Spytty from Home Farm (Caerleon) on Saturdays.
- Free bus to Sainsbury’s from Newport Bus Station, near the Newport City campus.
- Free bus to Tesco near our Treforest campus on Tuesdays.
