Faculty, staff to pay commuter bus fare
Starting Nov. 1, the Wheatland Express bus service between Pullman and Moscow will no longer be free for WSU and University of Idaho faculty and staff. Students with valid identification will continue riding for free.A book of 40 ride tickets will be available for $40. This $1 per ride rate is less than the $2 fare box rate.Since students pay for the bulk of transit services at both universities, officials decided to continue free service for the students.
 
WSU and UI contribute 50 percent, or approximately $100,000 annually plus fuel surcharge, toward the shuttle service.
 
Community feedback in the face of recent funding concerns indicated that many staff and faculty riders would be willing to pay to use the service and keep it going.Wheatland Express is operating under the final year of an extended contract. WSU and UI expect to solicit proposals this year from potential providers, with another multi-year contract to be awarded prior to August 2008.Comments and questions are welcome via e-mail at commuter@wsu.edu.
