The Walsall and Telford buses only run once every hour.
That means if you are stuck in traffic trying to get to
the bus stop, and you're a minute later, you've suddenly
just missed at least an hour of your lecture. Then factor
in the travel time, which is roughly an hour. Another hour
of waiting, one hour of travelling, and you're missing two
hours of potential lecture time. Most students wouldn't even
bother after that. If a student has to leave early and urgently
for whatever reason, eg a family emergency or an urgent
appointment, they have to wait for ages for another bus.
I believe it would be benefical to change the bus times
to every half hour instead. This way students are not
worrying about their buses rather than being able to
focus on study.
