U of R students vote in favour of U-Pass
REGINA – Students at the University of Regina have voted in favour of a universal bus pass, according to unofficial results from the U of R Students’ Union.
The referendum question asked students whether the union should negotiate a U-Pass with the City of Regina, that would cost every student $70-90 per semester to provide unlimited access to Regina Transit.
Students who live outside city limits, or live within a kilometer of campus could opt-out from the program.
This week, students voted 1520 to 1278 in favour of a U-Pass. The U-Pass referendum has been shot down twice before.
The referendum was held in conjunction with the Students’ Union election. You can find unofficial results here.
