Negotiations have revealed a $3.5 million funding gap in the students unions’ U-Pass proposal.

  • Kanisha Cruz-Kan, third-year student, Bio-Chemistry

    With all the things Katz has been able to spend money on, the city should be able to provide some sort of subsidy.

  • Matt Gilbert, third-year student, Politics

    I think the city, provincial and federal governments should contribute. It’s definitely a worthy expense.

  • Lindsay Johnson, second year student, Theatre and Film

    I don’t think students should have to pay any more. I think getting the pass sponsored is a good idea. It could be a good move for businesses to get some exposure with students.

  • Madilyne Kevany, third-year student, Bio-Chemistry

    I already pay about $400 a year for bus passes. If we have to pay a little more than the projected amount (for a U-Pass), I wouldn’t have a problem with it.
