U-Pass passes muster at Douglas


Thousands of Douglas College students turned out last week to cast their votes for the U-Pass transit program - and the response was overwhelmingly in favour.
According to the Douglas Students' Union's tabulations, 94 percent of students said they wanted the subsidized public transit passes at Douglas.
At $120 per semester, the passes will save many students hundreds of dollars in transportation costs each year.
The U-Pass will become available as of May 2011.
To find out more about the breakdown of the vote, visit the Douglas Students' Union website.
