U. of Nebraska-Lincoln may extend transit fee

Posted on August 20, 2012

LINCOLN, Neb. — Student fees are expected to increase next year at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) to pay for an extended bus contract with local transit agency StarTran, according to the Daily Nebraskan.

The expected increase results from the university’s decision to extend its three-year contract with StarTran to a five-year contract. The Association of Students of the University of Nebraska senators will recommend fee changes to the Committee for Fees Allocation next spring. For the full story, click here.

UNL also launched a new car sharing partnership with Zipcar Inc., providing a new transportation option that will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, according to local 6 News.

UNL will initially offer four vehicles, including Ford Focus and Honda Insight models. For the full story, click here.
