TRU students talk transit in Kamloops

Taking public transit is affordable, good for the environment, and it reduces road congestion. But it can also be inconvenient, impractical and impossible to get where you're going. 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.
