Winnipeg city council gives student bus pass the thumbs up
Winnipeg has moved a step closer to helping university students take a ride on the bus.
City councillors voted 13 to two in favour of the Universal Post-Secondary Transit Pass, or U-Pass, Wednesday.
The city will help subsidize the program, pitching in about a million dollars a year.
The plan will be put to students at the University of Winnipeg and University of Manitoba.
The city hopes to have the U-Pass in place by the fall of 2016.
