Bus Passes

The 31 bus travels from St John’s Campus into Worcester city centre.  It stops outside the Students’ Union, opposite the Woodbury Building, and terminates at the Worcester Bus Station, which is located in the Crowngate Shopping Centre. It also travels from the Bus Station and stops at the University Gates on Oldbury Road.

Buses will operate up to every 20 minutes, Monday-Saturday daytime and up to every 30 minutes Sunday daytime. The same timetable will operate ‘year round’ so there will be no need to check for different university term/university holiday timetables.  You can view the 31 timetable on the First Bus website.
