I'd like to know whether KU on Wheels, the bus service, is supported by Kansas University. Also, how much is its annual budget?

"KU on Wheels receives no federal, state, local or university funding," said Tim Akright, transportation coordinator for KU's Student Senate. "The bus service is paid for entirely by the students through student fees, bus pass sales and cash fares. SafeRide and Lift Van are paid for with student-fee money. This year, the budget for the bus service is $1,432,296, for SafeRide $217,828.60, and for Lift Van $40,115."
