Parking and Transit Services
is surveying students this
semester about their use of the
city bus service.
Instead of giving every park
ing-permit holder a bus pass,
parking services is requiring
people to ask for the passes.
The parking office will con
duct a survey in the fall with stu
dents who use the free StarTran
bus passes provided by the uni
versity, said Tad McDowell,
director of Parking and Transit
The survey will ask bus pass
users to rate the bus system and
provide information about how
often they use the service, he
University officials want to
know how many students use
the bus system to get to campus
instead of driving, McDowell
McDowell said he estimated
the bus system prevents about
400 to 500 cars from cluttering
campus streets each day.
“We want to determine
where enhancements and
changes should be made,”
McDowell said.
To conduct the bus survey,
university officials are asking
students and faculty members
who want StarTran bus passes
to call Parking and Transit
Services to request the passes,
McDowell said.
Last year, Parking Services
distributed bus passes to every
student who purchased parking
permits, he said.
Three thousand students
and faculty members have
requested bus passes so far this
fall, he said.
When users pick up their
passes, Parking Services puts
“We want to determine where enhancements
and changes should be made."

them on a survey mailing list,
McDowell said.
In November, bus pass hold
ers will receive a brief mail
questionnaire asking about the
bus system, he said.
“We strongly urge everyone
to please fill it out so we can
improve services,” McDowell
StarTran began providing
bus services for students with
free bus passes from UNL five
years ago, said Larry Worth, a
StarTran transit manager.
Last year, StarTran provided
390,000 rides for people from
the university, said Jan Bolin, an
accountant for StarTran.
In addition to evaluating the
bus system, parking and transit
services is also trying to
improve campus parking and
traffic by building a new park
ing garage, McDowell said.
The university is beginning
work on a parking garage with
over 1700 stalls at 17th and Vine
streets, he said.
Twelve hundred stalls will
be built by Aug. 1,2001, and the
500 remaining stalls will be
complete on Oct. 1,2001.
“Parking and transit is tak
ing a hard look at its programs,
the financing of its programs
and permit fees,” McDowell

gence or public affairs,” she
said. “I now have a real desire
to serve.”
