More Lawrence service?

A trial run of weekday bus service connecting the KU Medical Center with the KU Main Campus in Lawrence might begin Sept. 2. "Pending administration approval," the trial would last three weeks and would be self-funded. In reality, we're confident that they won't be able to cover the costs of two, 70-mile round trips with fares and this is really a exercise prove that these services are valuable enough for a state subsidy. The service would be open to anyone willing to pay the fare (we're assuming at least $5 each way). The popular K-10 Connector ($2.50 each way) that serves the KU Edwards Campus, Johnson County Community College, and the Lawrence campus is funded by short-term CMAQ grant.
