Just the ticket for stu­dents

Paisley Daily Express - - House Home -

I was re­ally im­pressed to see the cam­paign by our MSYPs to save the McGill’s stu­dent daily ticket.

Put­ting an end to the stu­dent day ticket will see young peo­ple who are study­ing out of pocket and cre­ates a larger bar­rier to en­ter­ing fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion.

Ren­frew­shire MSYP Josh Kennedy’s pe­ti­tion which, at the time of writ­ing, has had 5400 sig­na­tures calling for McGill’s to re­in­state the stu­dent day ticket is a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment.

The MSYPs met with McGill’s last week and the bus com­pany have agreed to meet with young peo­ple be­fore mak­ing any fu­ture de­ci­sions that could im­pact them.

They have also agreed to look into plans to cre­ate a stu­dent ticket for 16 to 20-year-olds.

I look for­ward to meet­ing with our MSYPs here in Ren­frew­shire in the near fu­ture.
