Transcript LEFT OUT IN THE COLD Some 300 students a day took advantage of free transportation from apartment complexes to UH this year. These same students and more may be left out in the cold next year unless UH officials are willing to fork over part or all of the $30-$50,000-a-year operational costs. Thus far, administrators are not willing to help fund the enterprise. The two buses, one going south along 1-45 and the other west toward Bellaire and the Southwest Freeway, have been operated by 7-K Transit and paid for by the apartment managements. The ride for UH students was free. A majority of students using the free bus service were international students, intensive English students, or those who do not own automobiles. Without the bus service, they will have to move closer to campus, hassle with public transportation or find some other means to get to UH. The bus service was set up last year on an experimental basis and was dropped for a time when problems with insurance arose. The halt left some students with no means to get to UH and in apartments not really within walking distance. The problem was resolved and service resumed. According to Bobby Brownstein, residence halls coordinator, the potential demand for the bus service is greater than current use. About 1,000 students live in the Bellaire-Chimney Rock area, one area serviced by the buses. Each bus makes eight rounds daily with four stops each for passengers. Since the cost of gasoline is going up, and commuter traffic is increasing, an expanded service with park and ride facilities could greatly alleviate traffic congestion at UH. Still, the future of the buses is in the hands of the administration which must come up with part if not most of the funding for the mass transit scheme, even before it can be expanded to utilize the service to its fullest. From the students' point of view, one of the most often voiced complaints is the sometimes inconvenient schedule which contains 3 to 5-hour waits between some buses, or that the service from the complexes to UH are terminated too early. — Carlos Cavasos «* mv <m 61
