Winter 2020 Bus Pass Update: Letter from President

Dear Undergraduate Students,

The CSA has reached out to Guelph Transit to open discussions regarding a partial refund for our Winter 2020 students. Transit has assured us they will be fair with all clients. At this time, they are not able to address refunds, but I assure you they will open dialogue as soon as operationally possible.

Should a refund be approved by Guelph Transit and City Council, we expect all Winter 2020 students will receive a credit via their UofG student account. The CSA does not have the capacity to refund 20,000+ students.
