Ottawa university students to vote on U-Pass system

Posted on October 31, 2011

OTTAWA — OC Transpo, Carleton University and the University of Ottawa signed a binding letter of intent to develop a multi-year agreement for a U-Pass program. The specifics of the three-year deal have not yet been worked out, but students at the two universities will be asked to vote on the proposed changes in a referendum question once the agreement is fully drawn up, according to Centretown News.

At the beginning of the 2010-11 school year, a pilot project was put in place that has now been extended to the end of this school year. However, an extension like that won't be an option after this year, which is why a new multi-year agreement is in the works.

The past two years of the pilot have seen support from the students at both universities, but an agreement to satisfy all students has proven to be just out of reach. For the full story, click here.
