Kansas University students will wrap up voting today on whether they want higher semester fees in exchange for free bus rides on newer buses.
Students began voting Wednesday on a two-question referendum on the KU on Wheels bus program.
The first question asks whether students would support a $20 per semester fee increase to pay for a fleet of 30 buses, most of them used buses built after 1992. The second question asks if they'd be willing to pay an additional $15 per semester to allow any student to ride any KU on Wheels or "park and ride" bus for free with a KU ID card.
If both pass, students would pay $35 more each semester on top of the existing $18 campus transportation fee.
But people who already buy a bus pass - which costs $176 per year, including fees - would save money.
For the results to be valid, 10 percent of the student body must vote.
