Better, faster shuttle route meeting leaves students stranded at BART station
September 21, 2007 2:30 PM
SF State students missed class time and tests waiting an hour for the SF State shuttle service today. The drivers were attending a meeting about an upcoming faster route.
Around five students sped across the Daly City BART station to catch the MUNI 28 bus, but most of them stared off into space, muttered to themselves about the tests and assignments they were missing, or read.
Tonya Pischke, the driver of one held-up vehicle, said she was late because of a meeting.
No meetings are planned for the future, according to Pischke.
“There was no need to notify; it was only a 15 minute interruption,” said Patricia Tovar from SFSU Parking and Transportation. She said the meeting was the only cause for the delay. Tovar supervises the drivers, according to Pishke.
Delays would continue throughout the day.
Shortly after 3:30 p.m., 15 students waited at the shuttle stop outside of the Humanities building. Spenser Nottage, a cinema major, was first in line and said he, too, had been waiting for nearly an hour.
Normally a shuttle arrives at the Daly City BART station every 15 to 20 minutes, and makes 3 stops on campus. The 28 bus line also stops at the BART station and goes to SFSU, but costs $1.50 for adults.
