Transportation Fee vote is March 9-10

Students will have the opportunity to vote on a proposed fee increase of $10 to improve shuttle services.

If the transportation fee referendum does not pass, reductions will continue to occur in shuttle transportation services.

Even if the fee increase is approved, surrounding apartment complexes will still be required to pay a fee, although Business Auxiliary Services Transportation Services Manager James Strahan said that the fee may be less than the $10,000 currently required. Off-campus complexes that elect not to pay will continue to not receive shuttle services at their location.

Although services have already been reduced, if more reductions are needed, route 41 and 43 may lose a shuttle bus.

“We will have to cut services where they are right now. I cannot maintain the service with the current budget,” Strahan said.
