USU Students Protest Potential Funding Cuts For Blue Bikes, Presidents Propose Alternatives
Utah State University students gathered at The Quad on Thursday afternoon to protest the potential defunding of Aggie Blue Bikes as a result of new student fee proposals.
Protest organizer Carter Moore told The Herald Journal the protest focused on positive messages opposing the “horrible idea” of cutting funding to the bike program. An estimated 50 people with chants and signage protested outside the Old Main building a few hours prior to a USU Student Fee Board meeting where the fee proposals were presented.
“It irks me,” Moore said. “Mobility is essential, Blue Bikes is essential and a $2.78 fee provides hugely important services to vulnerable populations.” Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
