Travelling between City and Headingley
17 September 2018
First Bus provide buses in and around the city that help students to travel around Leeds and its surrounding areas.
There has been an alteration to a number of the existing services that will affect students travelling between Headingley and City Campus.
Many of the changes have been made to simply improve the punctuality of bus services in Leeds, however read on for some of the major changes.
- The First service 29 (Student Village – Leeds – Headingley) has been withdrawn and will now be partly replaced by the new service 1B.
- First Bus service 1A: Leeds (Bishopgate Street) – Headingley – Ring Road, Lawnswood (this service runs half hourly Monday to Saturday during term time.)
- First Bus service 1B: Leeds (Bishopgate Street) – Headingley – Headingley Campus (this service also runs half hourly Monday to Saturday during term time.)
- Service 1 will run alongside these additional services that partially replace service 29.
If you are travelling between Leeds and Headingley, it pays to travel by bus, with First Bus offering student discount on their services. A student single ticket is £1.20 and you can get 10 single student trips for £11 when you show your Leeds Beckett University student card.
If travelling by bus doesn’t take your fancy, then you can always catch the train. The train from Leeds to Headingley leaves twice hourly, once at half past the hour and once on the hour throughout the day and takes roughly 8 minutes. The walk from Headingley station to the campus is approximately 10 minutes through Beckett Park.
