We spoke to over 120 people, students and lecturers, who were very happy to engage with us and share their feedback about the benefits of using the bus and the Under 22s free bus pass (U22s).
We even heard from a group of students, “what’s not to like about the bus?”, and we were very happy to hear that they take advantage of the U22 card to choose a way of travel that is more sustainable, cheaper, and allows them to admire the scenery during their journey to College.
The Campus welcomes students from all over Scotland. We met one student who commutes from Stirling (located 42.6 miles away from Cupar, Fife) to the College every day. She has her U22 card and so is able to save a lot of money. This shows us how important bus networks are in keeping people and places connected in Scotland. Moreover, buses promote fairer communities and provide a lifeline for many people.
One of the reasons we were also very happy to be promoting the #lovemybus campaign at SRUC Elmwood Campus is that they have some outstanding environmental work in Scotland, and the Campus Sustainability Department has won several awards.
We believe in buses for everyone and buses for the future. With actions that engage more and more people on sustainable journeys, we will build a greener and fairer Scotland together. We look forward to attending more events at SRUC Elmwood Campus in the future!
