Hi,I am a staff member and I have been using the Colwick Racecourse bus above free of charge showing my university ID. Yesterday, the driver wouldn’t accept it. I want to check if the scheme has been cancelled after the trail. I’ve not seen any announcements that says that. I didn’t know who to check with so are you able to let me know which department in the University posted this so I can check with them. Thank you.
