N.C.'s Chapel Hill transit may be forced to cut services

Posted on October 31, 2011

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Following the University of North Carolina's student fee advisory subcommittee decided to only approve $8.74 of a requested $14.50 student transit fee increase, Chapel Hill Transit might be forced to cut entire bus routes and reduce the frequency of bus stops due to a lack of funds, reports the Daily Tar Heel.

The student transit fee covers student contribution to the Chapel Hill Transit contract, Triangle Transit, P2P and Safe Ride funding, and is currently $113.50 a year per student. The tuition and fee advisory task force approved the subcommittee's recommendations, and the fee increase will now be sent to the Board of Governors for final approval.
