    I'm going into my 3rd year at UWE now and always lived in the centre so had quite a lot of experience with these buses. They're usually fine but you have random days where they seem absolutely awful and you end up waiting around for ages, usually if you have lectures or seminars that end late-ish (around 6).

    Depends what bus you get. If you get the U4 then it'll only take 10-20 minutes depending on the traffic on the M32. However, on the U4 everyone must have a seat and by the time we get to Marketgate if the bus is full (which it is 90% of the time for the 8.50ish service) then he'll just drive past. My second choice of bus is the U3 which normally doesn't take too long either but goes from a different bus stop around Marketgate so you'd have to decide in advance which bus you were gonna go for. I personally hate the U1 and U2, the journeys seem to drag on and on.

    The U1 does, I never do that journey though. If I ever get a train and go straight from uni I book it from Bristol Parkway instead, that's only a 5min bus journey away from Frenchay.
