TRU students talk transit in Kamloops

This week were taking a look at the Kamloops bus service. Today we hear from TRU students. Part of their fees pays for a "U-pass" - a bus pass for the entire semester. We wanted to know how often they catch the bus. We began by catching up with TRU Student Union president Dustin MacIntyre.
