I am deeply honored to introduce the bus routes for the Fall 2014-Spring 2015 school year. The Mass Transit Board of the NIU Student Association has worked with Veolia Transportation to bring the most accessible, student-run bus system in the nation.
When it comes to deciding new routes for the school year, I will keep in mind several key points. First I want to hear from the students, having open forums for students so they are able to voice their opinions. In the spring 2014 semester, I put together a Mass Transit Workshop to really understand the concerns of my peers. I also have to keep in mind that there are budget and time constraints on all transportation routes. My imagination and ambition for the future of Mass Transit is only bound by the realities and restraints of real world applications.
My goal as Director of Mass Transit is to have an efficient and effective mode of transportation for not just some, but all students.
