Thanksgiving shuttle assesses student demand

This weekend, the AMS will provide a shuttle bus between campus and the Via Rail train station to assess student demand for a bus travelling that route.

The shuttle is part of the executive’s campaign pledge for a new Kingston Transit route, AMS Vice-President (Operations) Leslie Yun said.

The bus will be paid for by the Bus-It program, a mandatory fee that gives students unlimited access to city buses during the school year.

It will run Friday and Monday and will be scheduled around incoming trains from Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto.

In order to ride the shuttle, students have to pick up a free ticket at Tricolour Outfitters starting today, Yun said, adding that it’s now unclear whether the executive will fulfill its promise of a new route.

“This is a good opportunity to see what kind of demand it gets,” she said. “It will give us more concrete details to work with.”
