The Big Lemon, the bus service powered by waste cooking oil from local restaurants, will now run hourly throughout the day from 8am to 4am, Monday to Friday, and all services after 10am run through the campus.
The service has also launched a passenger members’ club for regular travellers to reward committed ‘Big Lemoners’ with a big discount on the year’s travel and a say in how the service is run, as well as promotions at local shops, restaurants and bars. Managing Director Tom Druitt said:
“We have launched our club to give our regulars a better deal and to help us plan ahead and raise funds for future service improvement, such as increasing frequencies and ultimately extending the route and adding new ones to areas under-served. If the concept works, it could prove to be the best way of developing new bus services and engaging with the community to make sure those services are what people need.”
