LSU's bus services to be cut if fee not raised

Posted on December 16, 2013

BATON ROUGE, La. — A survey sent out by Louisiana State University’s Student Government to evaluate what students are willing to pay for Tiger Trails bus system, said the services will be reduced without a student fee increase, reported The Daily Reveille.

The two-minute survey is a follow up to the bus evaluation conducted last spring and asks students to identify how much of a fee increase they would support in exchange for between one and four more buses.

Based on research from the past five years of the Tiger Trails system and the results of the bus evaluation conducted last spring, it’s been estimated that a student fee increase of $13 is needed to maintain current levels of bus service. For the full story, click here.
