OPINION | Students want rides

Students joke about a possible student shuttle during the wintertime that could take them to class.
“I think it’s a great idea,” junior pharmacy student Brooke Maag said. “Especially days like these, it would be nice. It could run like every 10 minutes or something.”
Money is the issue, since the Student Government Association only receives a certain amount of funds to spend on transportation per year.
“I think it is something people would really like, but costs stand in the way above all,” SGA President Mike Keller said.
He said the transportation budget is about $50,000 a year for the shuttle service already provided by SGA on the weekends.
Maag said she thought transportation would be a great investment of tuition money because students are always complaining about the walk to class.
Since, the shuttle service is an expensive idea, the parking services could consider an extra parking pass.
Apartment Village residents could purchase passes for the bus. The purchase of these passes could generate money for the school.
