The Clemson Area Transit system, which signed a new contract with Clemson University for $1.3 million, may have to tap into reserve funds to close a more than $200,000 budget gap. For the complete story, click here.
The services may be an even more valuable resource now that the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities has ended shuttle service between and handful of local campuses.
The roughly $40,000 investment in the shuttle was made by the UAF Office of Sustainability, which is supported by a $20-per-semester fee on each student at the school.
Also, a parking app is under development to help students identify which commuter lots on the Dahlonega Campus have open spaces.
Discussions include the concept of creating a light rail speedy transit system with buses, which would include updating bus stops with Wi-Fi and developing an app that would track incoming buses.
The program currently includes two 22-foot, 22-seat transit buses equipped with nickel-cadmium batteries to meet the power demand of the buses and hydrogen-fueled proton exchange membrane fuel cells to maintain the state-of-charge of the batteries.
