The Shuttle

Dear Editor: How many of you ride the shuttle from the T stop everyday only to wait in the rain, snow or heat to arrive to class five minutes late? How many of you ride the shuttle on the weekends when it is more efficient to walk to campus instead of waiting thirty minutes for the bus? And who actually knows the schedule? Every ten minutes? Every twenty? Whenever the driver decides to swallow their dinner/lunch/breakfast and slowly pull into the station? I, for one, am tired of waiting on Saturdays and Sundays for the bus to pick me up at the T station and deliver me to my school. Does our tuition pay for this service? I am aware that this is a commuter campus and the number of students here on the weekends is close to none. No wonder! After three semesters spent waiting for the shuttle bus on the weekends, I now realize why there are so few students here. And after this last Sunday, (when I was forced to walk to the T station in 30 degree weather at 7pm)there will be one less.
