From 18 September the Costessey Park and Ride Konect Bus Service 511 will be free to use and enhanced with a second bus to give an overall frequency of 15 minutes. (During the morning timings are adjusted due to traffic conditions and thus will operate at a 20 minute frequency and at off peak).  The service will operate Monday to Friday, throughout the year (with exception of Bank & Public Holidays and UEA Concessionary Days).  Travel time between Costessey and the main campus is around 20 minutes during the morning peak (07.20 - 09.00) and just 10 - 15 minutes at all other times.  The service will use a combination of "bendy bus" with some 147 places available and a standard double decker.  

The service is available for travel to the main campus only with set down at Bus Stop B and pick up at the "Registry Stop" on the opposite carriageway just after the roundabout. The bus can pick up and set down at any stop on route including the stops located near to BUPA traffic lights B1108 and adjacent to the Enterprise Centre, University Drive. The service does not travel along Colney Lane.
