Bus System survey now available to students


Student Body Vice President Izzy Rogner continued to make progress in beginning the proposed student transportation service.

Rogner visited several organizations within the past few weeks including Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Zeta, Alpha Tau Omega, Alpha Sigma Phi, international students and several classrooms.

Over 500 students have completed the survey so far.

Rogner is trying to get as much feedback as possible to see if the student body is actually interested in the service and if the bus could be beneficial or not.

“I went on behalf of SGA to speak with the ATO guys about the bus system survey,” Rogner said. “My goal at this point is to be as unbiased as possible when encouraging people to take the surveys because I want to see if this is something the students really want. So far from the results, it appears that students love the idea and want to know where the bus will run and how it will benefit them for their transportation needs.”

Rogner said she is pleased to see students are taking her plans seriously and said she feels like all of her hard work throughout the summer and the semester is paying off.

Alpha Tau Omega member John Gleason said he thinks the bus system is a great idea.

“Being from Huntington and knowing the bus system could encourage students to interact with the downtown area is really great,” Gleason said. “I know what all Huntington has to offer and it’s a shame some students can’t see what’s outside of campus due to not having any means of transportation. I really think the student body would take advantage of the bus system.”

Rogner set a goal for 700 students to take the survey, but the number has been increased to 1,000 due to the amount of feedback the Student Government Association has already received.

Rogner plans to attend Pi Kappa Alpha’s next meeting to get feedback on the transportation system and get the survey link out to more Marshall students.
