Student Association launches ‘Share the Fare’ initiative
Student Association launches ‘Share the Fare’ initiativeApril 29, 2009Bridget Schultzbmschult@syr.edu
The Student Association has launched a program called “Share the Fare” to assist students in coordinating rides to their summer destinations. The program will run until the end of the school year. Sign-ups are available on the Share the Fare board in the Hildegarde and J. Myer Schine Student Center.
Any Syracuse University or SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry student is eligible to participate. The program is open to any student who needs a ride home or is willing to take students in his or her vehicle.
It is up to the individual student to determine how many individuals he or she is willing to take; whether gas and/or toll money is required; and when the ride will be departing.
The Student Association realizes that rides can be hard to obtain, and with the state of the economy rides can also be expensive. Therefore, a program such as this makes it easier for students to begin their summer with less stress. SA, of course, encourages all students to drive responsibly and respectfully.
