You may have heard around campus that First have won the contract to be the preferred partner of the University of York.
After discussions we have decided we will run the service independently.
Since 2012 we've worked tirelessly to build relationships with student bodies, unions, students, staff and visitors. We'll continue to do so to provide our customers with the best value of service. And the most important thing- we value your opinion, so if you have any queries or suggestions you can Tweet us @yorkunibus or our Facebook page Unibus York.
We'll have the same friendly drivers and superb customer service which has been in place since we began.
Transdev's York Transport Manager, Adam Jones, is looking forward to engaging with new and old customers in the coming months. 

"Unibus has been one of the biggest public transport success stories in York in recent memory, attracting more than double the amount of customer journeys in the past five years,” he said. 

"There are many reasons for this why we are seen as the people's favourite - with the number one attraction being our team of drivers dedicated to the route.

A recent independent study showed the service provided by Transdev on the Unibus service was perceived more positively than its closest competitor on the route. 

The results showed that 92% of staff and students scored Unibus drivers are good or excellent, compared to 66% on the competing service. 

Meanwhile, 84% of respondents said that Unibus offered great value for money, compared to 52% on the competitors' buses.

"Whilst it's great to get the endorsement of our customers, we're never complacent and we look forward to building on these excellent results even further. 

“This includes a special £10 offer for 20 trips on the Unibus Tripper card, which is available now." concluded Adam.
