Campus Shuttle trial stop at the Dockyard

We are pleased to announce that The Kings Ferry have won the tender for the Campus Shuttle and will continue to run the shuttle service for the next few years.

As a trial, the Campus Shuttle will run to and from the Dockyard. The service will continue to run on an hourly basis. The Transport Team and The Kings Ferry will be monitoring the effect and usage of this additional stop. This will be a term by term trial.

The Campus Shuttle is a free service for University of Kent students and staff between the Canterbury and Medway campuses. If you would like transportation between Liberty Quays and the Dockyard you can purchase a discounted ticket for the 191 Arriva bus .

As part of the new contract The Kings Ferry are providing two new larger vehicles, one 33 seater and one 49 seater. Features of the new vehicles include Wi-Fi, USB charging points, more comfortable seats, a toilet and fold out tables on the larger vehicle.

We will be providing more information shortly once more details are fully confirmed with The Kings Ferry. Please check our transport news webpage or the Campus Shuttle webpage.
