  • Re-introduction of connectivity to Kegworth on a number of the University Park to Sutton Bonington service;

That sounds like good news, especially the long term agreement for staff and students to travel for free on the Medi-link service.

It would be good if the KMC hopper bus service reverted to a larger bus that was easier to access and reverted to the original route which included the Jubilee Campus and the possibility to catch the bus near Science Road, as the Jubilee Campus hopper bus won’t pick up from that stop either.
