Transportation officials met with theWednesday to address recent changes made to the tram services provided by Texas State.
Nancy Nusbaum, interim director of transportation services, said interviews for her replacement will begin next week. Nusbaum is the interim director for Joe Richmond, who is out on extended leave.
Nusbaum said additional changes could be in store for bus services because the tram industry has indicated a 20 percent increase in costs for next year.
Transportation services officials are asking students to pass a referendum on April 6 and 7 that would increase the bus fee from $78 to $95 per semester for fall 2014 to cover the costs. The proposed fee is based on the same review by Texas A&M Transportation Institute that eliminated the Bobcat Tram Interurban services.
“If the students don’t pass the referendum to increase the fee, then we will be cutting services drastically, most likely,” Nusbaum said.
