HMS Cambria

#1
Hi, I am currently serving in the RNR and might be going to uni in Cardiff come september. As I would need to transfer to Cambria and will be a poor student (without a car), is it going to be possible to get to the unit regularly i.e. suitable bus links?

thanks, blimy

Option 0:

Get a bicycle! (ideally second hand so its less likely to get nicked)

I would expect 7.5miles to take <30mins after a bit of practise - keep you fit as well (depending on traffic lights/tricky junctions: maybe 50min in town traffic stopping at all the lights). If there's a couple of hills it just means one part of your journey will be a bit faster than the other.
Couple of rear panier's will allow you to transport a fair wack of kit - especially if you can remember how to fold it down to A4 ;o)

cheers,

R

Rix.
I'm from that neck of the woods, and a push crank is not a viable option. You take your life in your hands just venturing on the road in a car.

Isn't there university cadet force or whatever their called at Cardiff Uni? maybe they run a bus to Canbera.

Absolutely!
CAMBRIA would be delighted to see you. There are plenty of people that would be coming in from Cardiff, a few students too - so it won't be a problem.
Get hold of the Recruiting LH at CAMB in the daytime with some details and it can be fixed up for you. The number is 01446 421600, or email [email protected].

Lots of people coming from or passing through Cardiff to cadge a lift from. Otherwise good train service from Cardiff to Cadoxton which is the nearest station to Cambria. We run a pick up service from there to the unit and then a drop off service at the station at the end of the evening. As shipshape says, contact the numbers and all will be revealed. Look forward to seeing you at the unit.
