U. of Missouri student, city leaders spar on transit fee hike

Posted on November 28, 2011

COLUMBIA, Mo. — A University of Missouri (MU) student representing the city’s Transit System Task Force told Columbia Daily Tribune that city leaders were using threats to encourage the task force to accept a proposal from Mayor Bob McDavid to raise fees on college students to help fund Columbia Transit.

The city presented two potential scenarios for the future of Columbia Transit: Either students at MU, Columbia College and Stephens College help prop up the bus system through a student fee increase, or the city will be forced to pare about $1 million from the bus system’s budget in the next fiscal year. The cuts likely would result in elimination of the Black and Gold routes that serve students. For the full story, click here.
