Texas Tech is another state agency slashing its budget, but right now students are more concerned with the cost of Citibus service. Due to rising costs, the Student Government Association is proposing a $45 transportation fee for all students. It would tack on to their tuition bill every semester.
SGA External Vice-President Leigh Mauer says the fee is critical if students want to continue the Citibus service. If tech administrators pass the fee, students would be allowed to ride anywhere in Lubbock with a valid Tech ID.
