Free bus transportation - economical and environmentally friendly

One perk of studying in Palmerston North is that students (and staff) at Massey University and Universal College of Learning (UCOL) get free bus transportation.  This free bus service is economical and helpful. 

The service is also a great environmental benefit to Palmerston North. It was a finalist in the 2007 Energywise Awards run by the Government's Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority.
