The Santa Cruz Metro has proposed cutting the 16 and 19
night bus lines starting in Fall 2010. This would mean there would be
NO buses servicing campus after midnight, weekdays and weekends.
This is HUGE. Students would be stranded downtown, with no safe way to reach campus or the westside neighborhoods at night. Increased drunk driving after parties, negative effects on those who work late nights downtown...the list of horrific repercussions goes on and on.
IMMEDIATE ACTION IS NECESSARY. Public hearings start on Monday. There are 2 hearings downtown at the Metro Center, one at 2 PM and one at 6 PM. We must mobilize students to come to these hearings!!
The full list of hearings in the county can be found here: http://www.scmtd.com/images/
You can also email the SCMTD about how this service reduction will negatively affect you, email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Also email Larry Pageler, Director of UCSC TAPS, at email@example.com
Public comment period goes until June 11 so we must act now!!
