Bring the State Street Express to University Plaza at Metroplex
Last semester, University Plaza at Metroplex advertised that they were creating the State Street Express, a bus to bring UP at Metroplex residents to and from downtown, Thursday through Saturday. With the transfer of management, UP at Metroplex abandoned these plans and believe that the current situation with OCCT and Broome County Transit is "adequate" to transport students downtown. As many residents know it is a hassle to get downtown since the Downtown Express bus is usually full by the time it gets to UP and the Broome County Transit busses stop coming to UP at night. Either one has to risk getting stranded downtown or has to pay $4 for a cab, which surely adds up overtime. When I signed my lease for UP, I anticipated having the State Street Express and not having to struggle to get downtown at night. UP constantly advertised to "Drop the Taxi, sign a lease, and live it UP!" Guess what? We cannot drop the taxi and we cannot live it up! UP at Metroplex, please provide us with the bus that was promised and advertised!
