    Hi,

    Do you know how long it takes from the park and ride to the college lane campus and where to get off? It only has the forum on the inter-campus bus timetable.

    Thank you

    Thank you so much I'd rather use park and ride for 50p a day than park in the forum for £3 a day. Parking soon adds up!

    I've been commuting from North London (Islington) for about 2 years now. My journey takes about 40-50 minutes, depending on the train and when the uno bus turns up. If it's late it can take up to an hour or longer. The absolute worst part of the journey is waiting for the uno imo, it can be pretty inconsistent with you either missing it by 2 seconds or waiting 10-15 minutes for it to arrive. On a good day you wait 5 minutes or less, or it's right there when you step outside the station.
    To the guys who have 9am lectures at any point: brace yourselves cos the uno bus tends to get so full that the driver can't take anymore people and will have to leave some behind at the bus stop, so make sure you get to the front of the queue if you don't want to be late.
    Each uno ticket costs about £1 for students so if you're taking a bus to the uni and back it should cost about £2 per day (it might be more expensive this year, I dunno). There's always the option of buying a plusbus ticket at whatever train station you're commuting from (if you commute by train) which is a day pass so that you don't have to pay £1 every time you get on the bus. I can't really give you a concrete price on it because it varies depending on which station you're travelling from. For me it was £1.90 but inflated to £2.10 but for my friend it's been £1.50 consistently.

    For people going to and from Hatfield station, the buses you should take are 602, 653 and 341 (the stop to go to is the second one ahead when you first step outside the station - you'll know it when you see it cos that's the most crowded one)

    oh and a tip for getting on the uno bus:PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD HAVE YOUR MONEY READY BEFORE YOU STEP ON, YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW ANNOYING IT IS FOR SOMEONE TO STEP TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE AND GO THROUGH THEIR POCKETS LOOKING FOR £1 IN CHANGE
