A campaign will be launched during the Students Association elections at the end of March for the main library building on George Square to be open 24 hours a day.

The Student Council has already managed to extend the opening hours to 2:30am, and have previously argued for a 24-hour policy. Members of EUSA will now add their voice to the campaign, which is also keen to see other areas of the University, such as the Chrystal Macmillan building, extend their opening hours.

Bus passengers in Edinburgh are facing a new round of price increases this week. This marks the second price rise by Lothian Buses in 12 months.

As of the 4th of March 2012, single fare prices are rising from £1.30 to £1.40, while day passes are rising from £3.20 to £3.50. There have been no changes to student, child, or concession fares. The last price rise was in April 2011, when single fare prices rose from £1.20 to £1.30.
