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.
