During the past few years, students have often asked about receiving a Metro U-Pass, which would give them easier access to the public transportation system. Last year, the SGA Executive Board presented the idea of launching a U-Pass initiative at SLU to the University's administration. University President, Dr. Pestello, agreed to allocate money from the University budget for a pilot program. Since last spring, SGA and SLU's Transportation Services have been meeting with Metro to work out the details of the new partnership.
We are pleased to announce that SLU will be launching a Metro U-Pass pilot program this semester for freshmen students. The freshmen class was selected for this pilot program due to its members being the newest Billikens to the City of St. Louis.
