From there, you can reach Kaiserslautern University by taxi or by bus. A trip by taxi from the train station to the university campus costs about 6-8 Euro. Tipping is included in the basic fare and not expected unless an extra service is performed, such as carrying luggage. Bus number 5 departs from the bus stop (direction Uni-Wohngebiet ) in front of the rail station, and operates all day, approximately every 30 minutes. The most convenient way to reach building 42 of the university is to get off at the bus stop Abzweig Universität, and cross the bridge.

By Bus

The connections between the downtown area and the university campus are essentially operated by three buses (5, 14 and 15). All buses run about every 30 minutes during peak hours. On Monday to Friday, bus service begins around 6:00 a.m and stops around 23:00 p.m.On Saturday and Sunday, the bus service is more scarce. Bus stops are identified by a yellow and green H sign, which stands for Haltestelle.
