Schrader noted a change in traffic flow since

said. One of the changes will be a sidewalk

UNL Business Manager Ron Wright told a
group of nine East Campus students Monday that
a committee needs to be formed to study the
inter-campus bus situation.
The students met with Wright and Ken Bader,
vice-chancellor for student affairs, to complain
about the bus system.
The system was changed this semester to
increase service to students and to alleviate the
problem of buses sitting for long periods of time.
Buses now run every 20 minutes instead of every
Mary Sokolik, student spokesperson, said
many students believe the scheduling still is
inadequate. The main problem, she said, is that
schedules do not coincide with classes and that
buses leave East Campus too late.
More time needed
"Because the buses run 20 minutes after the
hour," she said, "students either have to leave 40
minutes early or arrive late for classes." She
suggested the scheduling be changed to 15
minutes after the hour to give students more
She also said students weren't notified of the
schedule change this semester.
Wright said more riders should have been
contacted before any schedule change was made.
He said the committee is needed to organize all
students concerned with the bus problems.
Ine committee should work with John Duve,
UNL parking coordinator, on the scheduling
situation, Wright said.
"Another schedule change during the
semester, however, would cause more confusion
for students," he said.
Sokolik said moving classes required by East
Campus students from the City Campus to the
East Campus would be convenient. Wright said
he agreed but added this would require faculty
members to go to East Campus.
Main problem financial
Both Bader and Wright said the bus system's
main problem is financial. A budget deficit of
$70,000 is expected by the end of this year, he
said. This is in addition to a deficit of $43,000
from last year.
"Although bus service will continue to be
provided this semester," he said, "something
drastic has to happen to finance the system by
He said the system could be tax-supported but
"it was the Legislature's tradition not to
appropriate money to anything that is not
He said bus-financing options proposed last
week by a committee of the Council on Student
Life (CSI) would be taken into consideration.
Those options include university financing by
state appropriations ard increased bus fares with
the university paying the balance.
Support by riders with the balance being paid
with student fees and complete support from
University Programs and Facilities Fees, were
also suggested by CSL.
