‘Not much scope’ to get students off-peak

Rob Ramaker

Wageningen University feels it has ‘little scope’ for helping fulfil the NS’s wish to keep students off trains and buses in the rush hour, says Tijs Breukink of the executive board.

‘Wageningen University understands the wish to cut the number of commuters on public transport at peak times,’ he says. But most Wageningen students come by bike, says Breukink. Also, they often come to the campus to study in the library or a computer room, not just for lectures. Moreover, the university does not wish to further complicate the ongoing discussions with the student council about extending the class times.
