Live Blog: Wednesday afternoon

October 15, early afternoon: the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa (SFUO) will make a presentation to the City of Ottawa's Transit Committee about a universal student bus pass, the U-Pass (read a primer here). Nick has been told that they've talked to all members of the committee and have received support, but the bigger obstacle, of course, will be the budget committee.

Newest contributor to TransitOttawa Emma Godmere will be exclusively live-blogging (at least I assume it will be exclusive) the presentation of the U-Pass to the City's Transit Committee Wednesday afternoon (the presentation is scheduled to begin at 1:30), so visit us to keep up to date on the response the SFUO's proposal gets.

Exciting stuff.

We received a lot of positive comments and constructive advice from the Committee, and the meeting ended with success - approval of the motion and an encouragement to bring the issue to the city's public budget consultations.
