Your five new double deck buses are here, helping to improve travel between campuses!
YOUR FEEDBACK IN ACTION #WLVFeedback - this is a direct result of feedback from students who travel between the University campuses in Telford, Wolverhampton and Walsall. The buses, which have been leased for five years, are easy access with space for two wheelchairs on each vehicle and are fitted with USB ports, free Wi Fi and CCTV.
Issic Romel, Union Affairs Officer for the University of Wolverhampton’s Students’ Union, said: “We are proud to introduce these enhanced transport facilities for students. Over the years the University and Students’ Union have been working in collaboration to consider what we can do to facilitate a better student journey. Based on student feedback and to increase capacity, as well as to meet other requirements of our students, the University is introducing five brand new double-decker buses fitted with USB charging points.
“Students will be able to work whilst on the move without having to worry about low battery on their devices or even simply benefit from replenishing their gadget battery while travelling. We can’t wait for students to experience the improvements for themselves.”
The vehicles seat 98 people (45 top deck and 29 bottom deck) with room for 24 standing.
