Student Fee Measure on ballot to support airport shuttle program
Transportation and Parking Services, in conjunction with the SUA Internal Vice Chair's Interns, launched another successful series of Slug Shuttles last month that transported 603 students at no cost from campus to the Mineta San Jose International Airport and Diridon Caltrain Station at the beginning and end of Spring Break. In all, 28 shuttle trips helped car-free students reach planes, trains, and light rail—including four trips returning student to campus as Break ended.
More than 1,100 students have used the Slug Shuttle since its inception last Fall. Measure 53 on the Spring 2013 Student Ballot will determine whether funding will be made available to continue Slug Shuttle service at Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring Break in the future. View the Student Ballot here starting May 1. To learn more about the slug shuttle program, please visit the TAPS website.
