This is great news for Regina. It’s a good night, where students have become the largest single stakeholder in Regina Transit, and will contribute immensely to improving transit in our city. This of course helps the ~85% of people who drive themselves around the city, because it makes that activity possible without traffic jamming quite as much.
You may recall that Councillor HAWKINS, Bob won with 1764 Votes (28.0%) in his Ward 2 election, and indicated he’d be watching to see how popular the U-Pass was. Well, U-Pass got 1520 votes, which is nearly as many as the votes that put him into his seat. Good enough for him? We’ll see, I guess.
