Transportation Relief

Comes to ATU Students

Vice Chancellor of Accra Technical University, Prof Samuel Nii Odai has commissioned the commencement of the "AAYALOLO - ATU" shuttle service at the University's forecourt.
The ceremony was as part of the orientation of freshly admitted students of the University.  Speaking at the launch, the Vice-Chancellor of ATU, Prof. Samuel Nii Odai, reiterated the University's priority for the welfare of students and mentioned that the shuttle service is one of the many arrangements management is making to ensure that students have a fruitful stay at the University.
He added that, the shuttle service initiative was necessitated by a diligent survey by management which revealed how burdensome it has become for many a student outside campus who ply the routes such as Kasoa, Madina, Nsawam etc to school every day.  The shuttle service therefore comes as a relief and creates the needed convenience for students to attend lectures on time as well as ensuring safety on the road.
The shuttle will be operating on pilot basis temporarily. For now, students on the Kasoa and Madina route will be able to use the services of the "AAYALOLO" bus at a subsidised fare. Subsequently, the services will be in full operation in areas such as Nsawam, Osu, Teshie, Nungua, Spintex, Ashaiman etc.  There is also going to be an introduction of customised "AAYAALOLO -ATU" cards for students to ease access to the service.
Senior member of the Greater Accra Passenger Transport Executive (GAPTE), Mr. Charles Annan expressed the company's delight to be partnering the University in such a laudable initiative.  He expressed GAPTE’s readiness to offer its services to institutions in Ghana and mentioned that they are capable of delivering with excellence.
The "AAYALOLO- ATU" shuttle service is the first of its kind in the history of the University.  It is a partnership between the University and GAPTE, providers of "Aayaalolo" buses, under the astute leadership of Prof. Nii Odai, Vice-Chancellor of the University.
