U- Pass, it would be a very rough day if I left home without bringing my U-pass. I lived in Richmond during the first semester. I had to walk fifteen minutes to the bus stop and take the bus 410 from the first stop for an hour to last stop 22nd street then take the sky train for another twenty minutes to SFU Surrey. After finished two lectures in Surrey campus, I had to catch up the sky train and bus 145 to Burnaby campus. Finally, after I had finished my school, I went home by taking buses. I have to travel through Richmond, Surrey Campus and Burnaby Campus, once a day. There will be a lot of money to spend per month if SFU did provide U- Pass to the students. Despite the students who drive, U-Pass is a gift to students who don’t drive. In average, each student can save about $60 per month if they are using U-Pass instead of using adult month-pass. A couple months ago, I had heard that since there were more people owned their car and they were no long need the U-Pass, SFU was intended to cut off the U-Pass benefit. I strongly disagree with SFU tried to omit the U-Pass. The reason that I disagree is because the some people who do not have a car is because of their family background; they might not have enough money to support the gasoline and car. Therefore, if SFU cut off the U-Pass, that would provide more pressure on the students who do not drive to school. If the U-Pass was cut, the students who needed U-Pass have to find another way to get it, the students who might need the U-Pass would never get one, and the people who never use the U-Pass would not make any change to them.
