The FEUS awaiting UdeS for financing shuttle

transport-sherbrooke-miseThe Student Federation of the University of Sherbrooke (FEUS) is still awaiting a response from the Universite de Sherbrooke (Sherbrooke University) to arrange a meeting about the funding dedicated to shuttle revelers students.

The FEUS has requested that a meeting be scheduled in early May, but the request was ignored so far from Sherbrooke University, learned the Tribune.

Recall that the University of Sherbrooke decided in January to withdraw its contribution in financing the shuttle dedicated to students traveling from campus to downtown Thursday evening. The shuttle bus for students participating in social activities (5-7) is to avoid the mayhem in regular circuits and which has often been maligned by drivers of the Société de transport de Sherbrooke (STS).

The FEUS is from one to assume the costs of commuting and security officers who are VOR, estimated at nearly $ 60,000 annually, and does not know how long it will continue.

There are three weeks, the Federation president Nicolas Delisle-Godin had admitted that it is now questioned the relevance of the service.

“We calculated that there are approximately 90 students who use it every time. That amounts to about $ 10.10 per person. This is very high. Do not think long to realize that the principle of user-pay would not work. We are evaluating whether the shuttle is still essential. We do not want to lose the service on campus, but we do not want to cancel social activities either, “he had then told La Tribune. ”

The deputy of the University District, Jean-François Rouleau, meanwhile said he “very concerned about the situation” and wants the association and UdeS able to “agree on a sustainable solution that will keep the citizens of its sector happy as they are now. ”
