According to this story: https://blnnews.com/2019/04/25/connect-transit-and-isu-facts/
ISU pays an average of .80 per ride for their students, The Connect Transit-ISU contract expires at the end of this year. I fully expect an emergency meeting since on December 5th the two sides couldn’t agree on what ISU will pay next year.
Meanwhile, the ISU Board is considering $50,000 bonus for President Deitz.
Bus service isn’t listed separately under fees charged by ISU – just this note:
The kids could just walk across campus like generations did before them, or they could pay $1 per ride like regular riders do. Either way, ISU will owe refunds if tuition has already been paid or billed for next semester.
Another reason why some agreement will be reached. Maybe if Chris Koos had filled the open seat in Normal, a disagreement could have been avoided.
