LA CROSSE, Wis.—Incoming Viterbo students will be allowed free unlimited use of the city bus starting this fall.

"This decision should help relieve some of the congestion around campus by encouraging new and returning students to leave their cars at home," said Sr. Jean Moore, vice president of student development.

The Viterbo Student Government Association has allocated funds from the student activities fee for the free buss pass which includes access to the Saferide program, which runs late-night routes from downtown to La Crosse area campuses.

Students who live on campus are not the only beneficiaries.  "By giving students a free MTU pass, we hope commuter students will get to campus with less hassle."

"We’re very excited about this new program and what it will mean to our students.  Some will save hundreds of dollars in just one semester if you consider the costs of gas, insurance, and wear and tear on their vehicles," Moore added.

In order to ride the bus free, students will need only show the MTU driver their current Viterbo student identification card.
