Help with Buses to Glenside Campus, UWE Bristol

Can anyone please tell me how long the bus journey is from Frenchay Campus to the Glenside campus? And what bus to take? I'm not familiar with taking buses and transport can be really confusing.

I'll be staying in private accommodation and I'm told that to get to Glenside I'll need to get to Frenchay first. I'm dreading that the journey will take too long

Hi kuromni

Travelling from Frenchay to Glenside will take approximately;

25 minutes by Bus
10 minutes by Car
40 minutes if you walk

There are also currently e scooters available supplied by VOI, I don't have exact times for this but I would assume between 15 and 20 mins. If this interests you check out their website - https://www.voi.com/city-guides/bristol/

Public transport is really easy to use at Frenchay. I believe that you can take the metro1, metro3 and metro4 and the 48A buses to get from Frenchay to Glenside but I would recommend checking the website here to make sure first;

- https://www.uwe.ac.uk/life/campus-and-facilities/getting-to-and-from-uwe
- https://bustimes.org/services/48a-city-centre-uwe-frenchay-campus-via-easton-e-2

When getting on a bus and your not sure, always ask the driver before you pay or board as they will be able to confirm for you, alternatively you could ask someone else waiting at the bus stop.

I hope this is is helpful.

All the best.
