As university students gear up for this year’s university Freshers fairs and festivities, Traveline Cymru is touring Welsh universities to help keep students up to date on travel discounts.
This month, the public transport information service will make its way around universities in Wales to help new students get to grips with their surroundings in new towns and cities.
The Traveline Cymru team will be making appearances at over 20 colleges and universities across Wales throughout September; including Bangor, Cardiff, Aberystwyth and Swansea.
As new students adjust to life in new surroundings, they will have access to bespoke travel services such as myunijourney and mytravelpass.
Filled with transport information and essential travel tips, myunijourney is a helpful online guide which includes a journey planner from their local campus, bus stop information and student ticketing.
Traveline will also be promoting mytravelpass- a discounted bus travel scheme entitling young people aged 16-21 to at least a third off bus fare prices anywhere in Wales.
Jo Foxall, Managing Director of Traveline Cymru said:
“Starting university is one of the most exciting and stressful times of a young person’s life. It can be incredibly daunting to be away from home, especially in an unfamiliar town or city.
“We want to encourage students, both new and existing, to make the most out of the public transport services in their area, and we’re on hand to help them discover what options are available to them as they start to get their bearings.
“We’ll be attending universities across the country over the next few weeks, which is the perfect time for students to come and chat to us and find out all about initiatives such as myunijourney and mytravelpass.”
“For many students, it’s about knowing what transport options are available to them, and Traveline are there to help them find the information they need.”
