The 50 Bus Service, Manchester. Reliable Or Useless?

The 50 Bus Service: free for students, running from Didsbury, Manchester to MediaCityUK, Salford Quays.

In a class project, myself and other trainee reporters set out to gather the publics view of the service using 'Soundcloud' and 'Voddio' on the iPhone.

Interestingly, the problems with the service seemed to stem on the fact that the bus is free to students of University of Salford between MediaCityUK and the Adelphi Campus, Salford. Students have been known to stay on the bus all the way into Manchester City Centre for free, which has caused a lot of split opinion whether this is fair or not.

This may be an issue that needs to be raised further. Get involved in the debate on Twitter using the hashtag #50busprobs

Heres a story me and my Digital Journalism class created in a class project. My role was out interviewing the public using an iPhone, getting a variety of audio and images to send to the newsroom for immediate publication, was a great experience!

Enjoy, and feel free to get involved with the debate or comment on the post!
