WICHITA, Kan. — After requiring dorm residents to park 2.5 miles away and use an on-call shuttle system, Wichita State University (WSU) will now allow those students to park on campus and has laid off nine shuttle drivers, The Wichita Eagle reported.

The WSU administration created the new transportation system a year ago to try to alleviate crowded campus parking and provide Shocker Hall students with 24/7 access to their cars. University officials said they expect to realize financial savings, as well as make students living in the dorm happier. For the full story, click here.
