Help getting students to uni! [Solved Somewhat]

[solved Somewhat]

Turns out you don't need 5 education to get consumer factories maxed, you need higher tech level. Which makes sense but is harder to notice since they don't display their current tech level. But if you go into tech level view you can see purple lines flowing from the university to the factories. So I don't need everyone at university, just need to have it. Also I don't think I needed all the students in university to get max education, just all students in school. Testing now with a high school as well, at 4 1/2 so far.


Currently I have no traffic, 3169 students and a maxed university (3300 class size) but whatever I do I can't get all the students to class. 90% attendance.


I figured they were getting stuck on the busses/street cars, but when I removed all of them I found out students don't drive anywhere, they need the public transit. 14 students total.


So then I put in 240 busses, with stops only in the residential area and the university area (right beside each other). 75/80% attendance.


How do I get them to go to university??? I have next to no traffic, half the time I don't see red at all during the 6am rush hour and when I do it all goes away on the next light change. But I still can't get all of them to go to school and it's affecting my electronics plants (need max education for max output). Why oh why didn't they leave in some kind of shuttle service like grade and high schools have? As a side note, if I switch to a high school I get 100% attendance, but you can't get max education from a highschool.

delete your other schools if you haven't already, and then just keep increasing pop i guess. If you have all the mass transit options then the only other factors really are alternative education options and total number of students in the town or region.

  • No other schools. I think there might be a grade school in the only other city but it doesn't show any students commuting. And about the pop thing, guess I wasn't clear. I don't want more students at the university, I want 100% of the current students going.


    Edit: Just edited title for clarity.
