Transport and Travel Co-ordinator for the University of Wolverhampton, Chris Robinson, said: “We were looking for buses that would offer students a more comfortable and reliable journey to and from university. Our campuses are spread out across Telford, Wolverhampton and Walsall, so it is important for us to be able to offer students a frequent and dependable service.
“The B5TLs that we have leased are easily accessible for wheelchair users and are fitted with USB ports, free Wi-Fi and CCTV, allowing every student to make the most of their travel time between campuses. Furthermore, the University of Wolverhampton prioritises sustainability and we recognise that the Volvo chassis and its Euro 6 engine will deliver lower emissions and offer a more fuel-efficient journey.
“We are confident in the service Hartshorne Motor Services Walsall are able to provide us. We selected a Volvo Gold Contract and so have complete confidence that we will always have the support of reliable Volvo technicians.”
Phil Hudson, Retail Bus and Coach Sales Manager for Volvo Bus commented: “We are delighted that the University of Wolverhampton has specified the Volvo B5TL following recommendations from within the bus and coach industry
“They have selected the Volvo Gold Contract for preventative maintenance and repairs, which offers peace of mind when vehicles are on a busy route where reliability is key. We are looking forward to working with the university again in the future.”
The University of Wolverhampton has a total enrolment of approximately 24,000 students who study across three campuses in the West Midlands.
