The University of Leeds is really well connected by public transport. Several buses run directly to the campus from Leeds City Centre and the surrounding area. If you’re travelling by train, Leeds railway station is a short walk or cycle away, and inter-city buses operate from the main bus station, again a short walk or cycle away.
There are a number of discounted travel pass options available to staff.
Catching the bus
Travelling to campus by bus is really easy – buses run past the Parkinson Building every few minutes during the day. These services include the number 1, 1B, 6, 26, 28, 29A , 56 and 97 - many of these are operated by First Bus Leeds.
The Leeds Core Bus Network is made up of 18 bus lines that run every 15 minutes. With colour-coded bus lines, maps, and improved information at bus stops, it has never been easier to travel in Leeds! For more information, please see the Leeds Core Bus Network.

Taking the train
Leeds is well served by national train services – visit National Rail Enquiries for more information. From the train station, it’s a short walk or bike ride to the campus.
