Unilink Christmas and New Year service levels
3 months ago
The nights are getting darker, the temperature is dropping, and the Christmas break is fast approaching. To help you plan your days out, get to work, or go out with friends across the festive season, here is a summary of how our services will be running over the festive period.
Unilink are proud to reveal we will once again be running on Boxing Day, with a special service on the U1 only. Plus this year, we will also be running a special service on the U1 on New Years Day, too, providing a link between the City Centre, Portswood, Highfield, Wessex Lane and the Airport just for you.
