It is that time of year where the Transport Team are working on developing a New Travel Plan and we want to hear from staff and students about your commute to and from the University and travel within the local area.
By completing the survey, you help us plan our future transport strategies, understand what current services are working well, what improvements or changes Staff and Students would like to the current transport options provided, and help us with our carbon emissions research.
Plus complete the survey for the chance to win £150, £75 or £50 added to your KentOne card.
The survey has been extended to 11:59pm on Monday 21st November 2022.
We are pleased to announce that from Monday 26th September 2022, the Campus Shuttle will have additional capacity and late night services operating between Canterbury and Medway campuses. The additional coaches put in place this week (WC 26/09/22) will be provided by Grange Travel (see below image) and we hope that Kings Ferry will be able to accommodate the additional services from next week when the booking system should be live on our website. Full details for the timetable of these services are displayed on our Campus Shuttle webpage.
Passenger numbers will be monitored and if coaches are operating at a low capacity or empty on a regular basis the timetable may be subject to change. Follow @CampusShuttle on twitter, where any disruptions or changes to the advertised timetable will be announced.
Please note that the journey time is approximately 45 minutes; although this is dependent upon traffic, ensure you plan your journey (including any walking time). If it is essential that you be on time then we recommend you catch the earlier service to avoid any disappointment if there are any delays on the roads. By boarding the coach you agree to the Campus Shuttle’s Terms of Service.
Please see the following update from Procurement about the University’s new Travel Provider and Travel Policy.
The University has awarded a contract to Key Travel as our new Travel Provider. Key will replace Click Travel imminently, and access to Click will be discontinued from December 2018.
If you currently book with Click Travel, Procurement will contact your School/Department Finance Administrator by mid-November to discuss access rights and training dates for the rollout. Should you be unable to attend the training session there will be frequent webinars which you will also be invited to attend.
This new contract also aligns with the launch of the new Travel Policy which was approved by Executive Group (EG) and went live on 10 October.
The policy can be found here and clarifies and expands upon the previous policy, providing guidance on when and how to book travel, how to assess and manage risk when travelling (especially to countries that may present danger to visitors), the use of rail, hotels, taxis, flights, and specialist providers such as Uber, AirBnB, and Booking.com.
There is also a summary which provides a high level overview of the contents.
