This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Arts University Bournemouth,

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I would like to know:

1. The subsidies provided by the university, to external bus companies operating university bus routes, for the last 5 complete academic years (2014/15 to 2018/19), broken down by the following where possible:
o Student travel
o University staff travel
o Any other subsidy provided
If the breakdown is not possible, a single subsidy figure for each academic year would be acceptable.

2. The expenditure on, and income from, any university provided bus services, including shuttle buses, for the last 5 complete academic years (2014/15 to 2018/19), broken down by the following where possible:
o Student travel
o University staff travel
o Bus staff salary
o Equipment costs, covering vehicles and facilities
o Any other operating costs
If the breakdown is not possible, a single expenditure and single income figure for each academic year would be acceptable.

3. The number of complaints received by the university regarding university bus services, for the last 5 complete academic years (2014/15 to 2018/19).

If the data is collected in financial years, rather than academic years, please do provide the information in this format, for the last 5 financial years (including 2018-19 if possible), making it clear which format has been used.

Yours faithfully,

Adam Hodgson

Dear Adam Hodgson,

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request. I can confirm that Arts
University Bournemouth does not provide any subsidies to external bus
companies operating university bus routes. AUB makes a yearly service
contribution to Bournemouth University, amounts shown below, however, this
is paid as a lump sum so we are unable to provide any further breakdown:

2014/15 100,000.00
2015/16 132,805.17
2016/17 146,556.16
2017/18 172,473.50
2018/19 176,133.19

Kind Regards

Arts University Bournemouth
