Over the past week, Barrie and Orillia GCSA facilitated a referendum to ask students if they would want a universal bus pass. All eligible Georgian and Laurentian students were sent an email with a secure link to vote online. The results are below.
Based on the results, there will be no universal bus pass at this time. However, GCSA is always looking for ways to help students financially, and is reviewing all the feedback to see if there are other opportunities to assist students.
