Sheridan College Students May Soon Have Unlimited Bus Passes
After years of discussion, the Sheridan Students Union (SSU) has announced a vote for late November on ratifying a potential universal bus pass for Sheridan College students that will allow for unlimited travel on Brampton Transit, MiWay, and Oakville Transit.
Currently, the student union runs a bus service between Brampton’s Davis campus, Mississauga’s Hazel McCallion campus, and Oakville’s Trafalgar campus. As the college has indicated that funding is no longer sustainable, the SSU will be asking students to vote between November 26-30.
The new pass would cost $197.15 per semester (roughly $49.28 per month). While this is higher than other U-PASSes in Ontario, this would be the only one that grants access to three separate systems. Even for a student only using Brampton Transit, this would be a saving of almost $75 per month for students above the age of 19 (and almost $60 for students eligible for the youth category).
