May 2012

State Transit recorded a 28% increase in the number of trips taken on the 891 service between Central and UNSW as students concerns mounted over increasing wait times and inadequate services.

The increase from 59,550 to 76,371 rides in the quarter ending March mirrored an increase of student numbers by approximately 20% to 53,000 following the Federal Government’s uncapping of student places at tertiary institutions earlier this year.
