It has been a long time since we have been getting the buses to campus regularly. Due to COVID, First Bus has not had to operate at its usual capacity since March 2020. Plus there have been some route changes since that time. 

Reliable and cost effective transport is vital to students, and The SU is doing all it can to ensure our members have an effective bus route to campus.
