BERKELY, Calif. — An ASUC (Associated Students of University of California) senator is planning an inter-UC campus bus system that, if created, would provide students with convenient and inexpensive transportation among the nine campuses, The Daily Californian reported.

The ASUC aims to expand upon the existing Berkeley-Davis shuttle, a part of the UC Fleet Services. The shuttle charges $11 for a one-way ticket and uses university-owned buses. The ASUC is still determining the frequency and ticket costs of the new system but will likely make them similar to those of the existing shuttle. They have yet to determine sources or metrics of funding for the project, according to the report.
