The University have today confirmed that they will be paying for a free bus service to transport people between the Heslington East and Heslington West campuses.
The bus will be a continuation of the number six First bus service which would usually run between town and B&Q. The bus will now continue to the Heslington East campus and then on to Heslington West, before returning to Heslington East and rejoining its usual route.
The service will be free for anybody traveling between the two stops, without any student identification needed, and will be funded by the University for the academic year.
YUSU President Tim Ngwena supported the University’s decision to fund the travel, today stating that “this is great because not only does it make travel easier but it also allows for the full integration of the college into University life.”
The free bus service will be available from tomorrow, Saturday 3rd October.
