Bus Service Elimination Planned
The university has decided to discontinue its free bus service for students. The reason given for this decision is that few students ride the buses and the buses are expensive to operate. Currently, the buses run from the center of campus past university buildings and through some of the neighborhoods surrounding the campus. The money saved by eliminating the bus service will be used to expand the overcrowded student parking lots.
(Man): I don't like the university's plan.
(Woman): Really? I've ridden those buses and sometimes there were only a few people on the bus. It did seem like a kind of a waste.
(Man): I see your point, but I think the problem is that the route is out of date. It only goes to the neighborhood that have gotten too expensive for students to live in. It is ridiculous that they have not already changed route, you know, so it goes where most off-campus students live now. I bet if they did that, they'd get plenty of students riding those buses.
(Woman): Well, at least they are adding more parking, it has gotten really tough to find a space.
(Man): That is the other part I do not like, actually. Cutting back the bus service and adding parking just encourage more students to drive on campus and that just adds to noise around campus and create more traffic. And that 'II increase the need for more parking spaces.
(Woman): Yeah, I guess I can see your point. Maybe it would be better if more students use the buses instead of driving.
(Man): Right. And the university should make it easier to do that, not harder.
