LSA senior Ari Liner had been pacing up and down Willard Street for 20 minutes, trying to keep warm while waiting to board a charter bus to Crisler Arena so he could attend last night’s Big Ten match-up against Penn State.
The bus was provided by LSA Student Government, which launched a campaign to transport students to home basketball games last night.
Buses pick up students at Markley and East Quad Residence Halls and the Michigan Union beginning at 7 p.m.
Despite the wait, Liner was happy to take the bus.
“Parking down there is such a pain,” Liner said. “This time I parked my car outside of East Quad and then waited at the closest bus stop. It seems like a good system.”
Students ride the buses for free. LSA-SG paid $246 for the four hours the charter buses were in service.
The Athletic Department will provide buses for the upcoming games against Purdue and Iowa. As of now, LSA-SG has not decided when it will offer a bus service in the future.
