TSDSU to lobby UWTSD & to invest in the LiftShare App
That parking capacity on UWTSD sites has been and is currently a huge issue, with demand for spaces far outstripping supply.
That the vast majority of our students in Carmarthen and Swansea commute to university from across the local catchment areas.
That decreased accommodation availability in Swansea and a lack of uptake in Carmarthen has had an adverse impact on university parking facilities.
That the university should be promoting ‘greener’ alternatives to individual students driving to and from university locations.
Councils Further Believe:
That via LiftShare, students and staff will save money on travel, thus providing a series of knock-on effects beneficial to retention of students by UWTSD.
Investing in LiftShare provides the university with a ‘tried and tested’ system that prevents them from having to reinvent the wheel.
That large numbers of staff work across campuses in Wales and England and that LiftShare is a method by which to reduce the carbon footprint of necessary university travel whilst also saving money reimbursing staff travel.
To lobby UWTSD to invest in the LiftShare App, on the basis that the initial financial outlay will save the university in efficiencies in the long-term whilst also contributing to a lower carbon-footprint.
For the SU to work with the university to explore how best to mitigate costs associated with the translation of LiftShare in order to be compliant with UWTSD & TSDSU bilingual policies.
