As of the first of October the University plans to introduce a £1 (each way, so £2 a return) charge for the inter-campus bus service for all staff and students. So a brief breakdown, 4 lectures a week: £8 a week. £32 a month! This is too much! This cost is horrific as many first year students do not have the option of which campus they would choose live at, as well as others who have arranged their accommodation on the assumption there was a free bus servies. Hundreds of students rely on the bus service to commute between campuses. This is well the ever increasing cost of tuition. I urge all students and staff to support our campaign by signing this petition, which will be sent to the University, as a demand that this unfair charge will be dropped.

mike spice, United Kingdom5 years ago Comments: I think it is an outrage to charge students to travel to thier lectures, £1 a journey will only encourage students to use a car and park for less than the cost of the bus. In these days of fuel efficiency it is silly to make it cheaper to park a car than use the bus!
