UC students Matt Wilkins and Na Zhou are carrying out research to investigate the feasibility of free bus services for Christchurch students. This study is supervised by Dr Glen Koorey who is a member of the Christchurch Passenger Transport Advisory Group. This research follows up a similar project from 2005 by another UC postgrad student.

There are many bus routes around campus for students which makes it a convenient and relatively cheap form of travel. A few other benefits as listed on UC’s Sustainability  website include: no hassle trying to find and pay for a parking spot, no stress dealing with bad drivers on the road, more time to catch up on study and a quick mode of travel as buses have priority on the roads.
