Explain your idea further

The free university bus currently only runs one way, i think it will be appreciated by all students to have a bus that runs the opposite way as it will be easier and quick to get to and from your destination.

How would your idea benefit students?

It makes travelling to and from your destination safer and easier for all students.

How could your idea be implemented?

Adding a bus service that runs the opposite way as well and the current bus route.

An update from UPSU President, Helena Schofield:

I had a meeting with the Director of Estates and Campus services who communicated that it would not be financially viable to introduce a two way bus service without introducing a small daily charge to students. We are one of the only universities in the UK to run a free bus service. Following this meeting, we put out a survey asking students whether they would rather keep the bus service free and as it is, or pay a small fee and introduce another route. The results showed that around 70% would rather keep it free and the same route, so this campaign was ended.
