Students at a student travel service in Florida will soon be able to take the bus for free.
The University of South Florida announced Friday that it will offer free transportation to more than 60,000 students at more than 40 campuses.
U.S. Rep. Donna Edwards, D-Miami Gardens, and Rep. Brad Sherman, D.C., are sponsoring the legislation to provide transportation for students who live in high-cost communities or live in a high-density area.
Students who live near an area that receives more than 30 percent of its transportation funding from the federal government will also get free rides.
U-T System officials said in a news release that the program will help U-T students avoid driving or walking more than 15 minutes to their destination.
“We know that many students who use U-Terra travel do so because of a lack of mobility and accessibility,” said Jim Folsom, vice president for travel and travel services at the U-Torra.
“This is a critical component to the U.S.-Mexico border, and our goal is to increase accessibility for students as well as families.”
U-Terrapin will operate at more locations throughout the U, including at Miami-Dade College and at U.C. Irvine.
U-Traffic, a student-run travel agency in Chicago, will also be operating free for students this year.
Umar Al-Mansouri, vice chancellor of travel and tourism services at Alumni College of Florida, said the U is one of the only states in the country that provides free bus transportation.
“It’s a big deal,” Al-Moouri said.
“There are many people in the state that would never get out of the car.
They want to get around the campus.
“It will also make it easier for people to get out and enjoy their campuses, which is important to us. “
“For a student, that’s just fantastic.””
The funding will be paid for through an existing federal grant program that is part of the U’s Student Transportation Trust Fund, which will continue to operate until June 2020.UF officials said the students will receive a voucher from the voucher to use in their own vehicles for the next two years. “

The money will cover the cost of travel to and from school and will be used to pay for student fees.
The voucher is currently available for purchase at the university.
Uf students have been able to use the vouchers since March, when the university announced that it would be discontinuing the vouchers.
Students and faculty members had been able for more than a year to purchase the vouchers at the cost to their tuition.
The U-Drive initiative was a result of a U-M study commissioned by the university that found that the average cost of attending a U of M campus was more than $6,000.
The cost of a full-time student who completed a four-year degree in 2019 was $15,000, the study found.
Students at U-Memorial Medical Center in Atlanta are scheduled to travel free to their new residence hall in 2019.
The University of Georgia is also working to provide free transportation for all students.UCLA, which operates the UCLA Medical Center, has a program called U-Haul that allows students to transport items to and fro.
The program is available to students and faculty from all over the U., including the city of Los Angeles and the California campus of the University of Southern California.
The UCLA Transportation Department is looking to expand the UCLA Transportation Hub program to include other institutions, such as the University at Buffalo, which offers a similar program called the UCLA Hub.
