Keep the morning inter-campus bus service for all Temple University students

This petition had 187 supporters


A recent change to the inter-campus bus schedule, effective Fall 2017, will cut the early morning bus service. This means that non-Ambler campus students and faculty that rely on the 6:50 a.m., 7:50 a.m., and 8:30 a.m. bus service to get to the Health Sciences Center and/or the Main Campus from Ambler, will have to seek alternative transportation. Some of your options are to drive, take regional rail, or adjust your class schedule to fit the new inter-campus bus schedule.

First, if you choose to drive, a parking spot at Temple University Main and the Health Sciences Center costs, as of April 2017, $240.00 per semester. Second, if you decide to adjust your class schedule to fit the new inter-campus bus schedule, the earliest bus that leaves Ambler is at 9:45 a.m. That means you will arrive at the Health Sciences Center at around 10:25 a.m. and at Temple Main at around 10:35 a.m. 

Lastly, if you choose to take the regional rail, a SEPTA TrailPass for Zone 3, as of April 2017, costs $163.00 a month (TrailPass Zones). However if you're fortunate enough, Temple University, through the Bursar's Office, offers a limited number of semester passes at a 10% discount, so for students that live in Zone 3, they will be paying $588.62 per semester (TU TransPass Discounted Prices). It is also important to note that these limited passes are only available to full-time students and your semester pass will be withheld if SEPTA increases its fares after the mail-in payment deadline. 

Please sign and share this petition to bring back the early morning Temple University inter-campus bus service in Fall 2017!
