Preamble: The Universal Bus Pass (U-Pass) provides students with unlimited access to Guelph Transit and has been provided to all University of Guelph undergraduate students since 1995 and graduate students since 2000. In 2016, students voted in favour of the mandatory fee which required that all students paid into the program to ensure the service could continue at such discounted rates. The agreement will expire in April 2021, and the CSA will need to renegotiate the U-Pass through a vote by the student body in Winter 2021, as it does at the end of each agreement reached.

Question: Do you support the continuation of the Universal Bus Pass (UPass) and increasing the semester fee by $50.00 over 5 years (15 semesters), applicable to all full time and part time undergraduate students according to the fee schedule?

In Winter 2016, the Undergrad Student Bus Pass Referendum was passed.
