FTR officials have announced that the recent trial of reduced bus fares for students has been a sucess, and as a result are planning a second trial in week seven of this term. The trial saw the price of a return journey from campus to town fall from £2.90 to £2.00 with a student card.
The bus company came under fire last term when they increased prices across the board. However, news of a seccond trial suggests they are listening to calls for change in their student policy. “It sounds like students are really being listened to,” said one first year, “and it’s nice to see some ‘big guys’ caring about their customers.”
