Supermarket Shuttle Buses

Several supermarkets offer free bus services which are not affiliated to the University but may be useful to students.

  1. The bus operator N.A.T. Group lists these free services online by region on the N.A.T. Bus Network pages.
  2. Look for the ASDA Free Bus, Sainsbury Free Bus or Tesco Free Bus in your area.
  3. These tend to be listed near the bottom of the page! The listing is alphabetical and these bus lines don’t have a number.
