Department of Land Economy

Environment, Law & Economics
 

The University launched its five-year travel and transport strategy in 2019.

The aims of the strategy include:

  • Working with local transport providers and local government to improve public transport 
  • Improving cycling infrastructure and facilities to support cycling via initiatives such as the Pool Bike scheme and Dr Bike maintenance sessions
  • Working towards 100% electrification of the University’s vehicle fleet by 2030, and electrification of the Universal bus service from 2021
  • Reviewing our approach to car parking permits to make sure these are managed consistently and transparently across the University, and are allocated to the people who need them most

In the department we are lucky because our building is centrally located with good travel links by bus, bike and on foot.  Lack of car parking encourages staff to travel more sustainably by default, and secure bike sheds provide ample storage space.  Bicycle repair kit and tools are available to all staff to fix broken bikes, and details of the University's regular Bike Maintenance workshops can be found HERE

We are also on the Unibus route with stops in both directions outside the Queens' College entrance.

Full Unibus and other bus service information can be found HERE.
