Travel information:

We strongly encourage you to ox-plore the trail by bus, bike or on foot. Parking is extremely limited on the hospital sites, and it’s important that parking is available for patients and visitors, so please be mindful when planning your journey.

Freeflow is a convenient way to pay for your bus travel using contactless payment.

Simply tap on at the ticket machine at the start of each journey (when you board the bus/coach) and tap off at the end of each journey using a contactless payment method (Visa/Mastercard payment card or Google/Apple Pay). Find out more here.
