Explanation

Each week this term the 8.55 shuttle bus from Telford to Wolverhampton has arrived to Telford bus station at least 10 minutes late. As the shuttle leaves at 8.55 even a small delay means we arrive at university with only 1 or 2 minutes to make it to lectures on time. Does anybody have any ideas/comments about potentially bringing the weekday bus times forward slightly. For example, by possibly 20 minutes to allow students to get to campus with enough time to make it to lectures. This would then be the same time per hour as the first bus of the morning.

Status

Change bus times between Telford and Wolverhampton to avoid being late for lectures

  • 16 Apr 2019: The University would like to extend the following message: "The present time has been formulated to provide the optimum service level for all students and staff; regrettably the number of driving staff and buses doesn't allow for a direct service from Telford to Walsall. If the first service from Telford was to be brought forward to coincide with the 07.50 hrs departure from Randall Lines; it would mean a 06.45 hrs departure from Telford Bus Station which would upset a great amount of students using the first departure. Conversely the last evening service would have to be dropped to accommodate the earlier departure."

This Idea is closed and no further action will be taken.
