National Express expands its university timetable
The UK's largest provider of direct university coach services has expanded its academic timetable.
National Express is running services to the door of an additional four campuses in a move further strengthening its position as the number one travel choice for students and young people.
This week the UK's largest coach operator began running services to:
- University of Brighton
- University of Sussex
- University of Leeds
- Leeds Metropolitan University
The new services come in addition to the 15 universities that National Express already serves.
Meanwhile the coach operator also increased the number of coaches stopping at Loughborough University to enable undergraduates, postgraduates and lecturers to have easy access to great value transport.
National Express already offers the UK's largest provision of direct university coach services, and its iconic white coaches call at most university towns and cities putting many campuses just minutes away from the coach station.
National Express UK Coach Managing Director Tom Stables said:
"Students need to be able to travel affordably while still enjoying comfort and convenience, so we're pleased to be able to expand our university services ensuring more people can benefit from great value transport right to the university door. Our services also include a very generous luggage allowance making the return to campus, weekend breaks or journeys to other universities as easy as possible."
The expansion of services comes as year-to-date passenger journeys made by people using a Young Persons Coachcard has almost doubled compared to 2012.
So far this year more than 800,000 passenger journeys have been made using National Express' Young Persons Coachcard.
The Young Persons Coachcard enables students to save a third off their coach journeys and also offers 10 per cent off travel to favourite student events such as Glastonbury and Wembley football matches.
