UFV students support private inter-city shuttle bus

Preliminary results show that 75 per cent of UFV students are in favour of hiring Chilliwack–Abbotsford shuttle bus.

University of the Fraser Valley students voted in support of hiring a private shuttle bus between Abbotsford and Chilliwack campuses. And just in time, as Greyhound reduced its service last week.

Preliminary results show that approximately 75 per cent of voting UFV Student Union Society members are in favour of paying $6.75 per year to hire a shuttle bus, tweeted SUS president Shane Potter on Monday.

Final ratification will be on Friday.

The proposed shuttle would run between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., ten times per day, and would be open to students, faculty, and staff.

On Friday, Chilliwack residents noticed that Greyhound trips between the two cities have been cut. Instead of the past 10 daily trips, there are now five: three in the morning before 9:30 a.m., and two at night after 7 p.m.

There is no public bus between the two cities.
