Will’s Travel Plan
Mon, 21 December 2009
Engineering student, Will Figg, has designed and implemented a travel plan specifically for Tameside College students.
As part of his Advanced Diploma and links with the Careers Academy he worked for 6 weeks over the summer with Tameside Council. Under the supervision of Pamela Vaughn, who creates travel plans for primary schools in the area, Will used the information and skills he was leaning to benefit students at the college.
The ‘College Travel Plan’ is an information service incorporating travel information about bus, train and tram services as well as walking and cycle routes. Although the plan is mainly focused on Tameside College and its surrounding area it includes information for other nearby locations as well.
The service is updated regularly using information from GMPT, Tameside Council and Northern Rail. To access the service just click on the ‘College Travel Plan’ link through StudentZone.
