If you're going to be living at Greenbank Student Village then you'll be starting to think about how you're going to travel in to the University Campus. Greenbank Halls are approximately 3.5 miles from the University Campus/City Centre and students are discouraged from driving as parking is very limited, plus we'd like to encourage more eco-friendly ways of getting around! Walking takes around an hour but most students will take the bus or cycle.
Getting the bus
The 699 runs between Greenbank and the University Campus. The journey usually takes between 15 - 20 minutes depending on the time of day. Smithdown Road is also just a five minute walk away from Greenbank and there's plenty of very regular bus services running between there and the City Centre.
If you're going to be using the bus as your main way of getting to and from University we would recommend you get a Student Saver ticket. Liverpool Guild of Students are offering an exclusively discounted rate if you come into the Guild shop in person and buy a pass when you arrive - you can learn more about this here. This will save you up £55 across the year but is only available in person from the Guild; this discount cannot be obtained directly from Arriva. You can also download the handy MerseyTravel Journey Planner here.
