(Jan. 14, 2010)--In April 2009, UTSA Business Auxiliary Services personnel began meeting with management staff at apartment complexes near the UTSA Main Campus to discuss the long-term viability of continuing to offer UTSA shuttle stops at apartment communities for residents who also are UTSA students. The apartment managers were advised at that time that there would be a fee of $10,000 per semester in order to continue service in the spring 2010 semester.
The UTSA transportation budget is funded solely by the student transportation fee. With the increasing number of apartment complexes near UTSA, the steep rise in the number of students riding the UTSA shuttles and no increase in funding, the level of service could not be maintained.
Last October, members of the Student Transportation Committee placed fliers on all UTSA shuttles buses and at bus shelters advising student riders of an upcoming change and encouraging them to speak with apartment management to see if their complexes would pay the fee to continue shuttle service in spring 2010.
To date, five of the 11 complexes affected have agreed to participate: High View Place, Hill Country Place, The Reserve, The Outpost, and Broadstone Ranch. UTSA Business Auxiliary Services estimates that more than two-thirds of students riding the off-campus shuttle will not be affected by the changes.
The complexes that no longer have a shuttle stop for the UTSA Main Campus include Chase Hill, Las Colinas, Alpin, Maverick Creek, Highlands, and Bluebonnet Hill.
