Proposal                  
                     
Background: Concisely describe the background of the request.
The shuttle pilot that senate helped fund this semester has shown promise, but senate decided that with the new parking changes it would be best to fund it as a pilot for one more year before committing to funding it long term. Senate also will have control next year over evaluation and approval of the project as it moves forward.
Request: Outline and justify the item(s) to be purchased or the amount of funding needed.
The funding required for one semester of running a shuttle for 75 days at 10 hours per day is $56,000. This cost breaks down to $75 per hour which covers drive wages, gas, maintenance and insurance for the shuttle.
Impact and Implementation: Please detail the impact to the program(s) or student constituencies the request will benefit, lifetime of item(s) to be purchased, as well as who is responsible for overseeing the use of the funds, if approved.
The shuttle routes will be the same as they were this year, but I will be working with administration over the summer to add an additional shuttle to the F-lot by 19th. In addition, I will coordinate with UPD and our marketing team to make sure students are aware of the service when they are purchasing parking passes.
