“Yo voy a Edinburg martes y jueves y siempre se llena el autobús y mucha gente se ha quejado de que los que no caben los dejan y al último pasa un autobús como 20 minutos o hasta una hora tarde y no alcanzan a llegar a sus clases. También, siempre tenemos que andar peleando por nuestro asiento. Si nos cobran tanto dinero deberían de darnos más transporte porque nosotros no pedimos juntarnos con Edinburg, o si no que ofrezcan más clases aquí y no allá”.
“I find it to be a really cool idea of how a person can take a shuttle from both campuses. It really brings us closer together even though we are far away and it is very convenient for the people who don’t have their own transportation. … I think there is a bus that’s just here around campus, which takes you from one side of the university to the other one. I think that’s also very useful for people, so that they don’t walk or they are in a really big hurry, they have that access. Right now, the bus drivers, they are really friendly, really nice, and I just think it’s an overall very good idea and maybe they can expand it in the future.”
I’ve only used the shuttles a couple of times, and all in all, I haven’t had any problems. I think it’s really cool that I can get a lift to behind the Rec Center. They just put in those new bikes where you can rent them and that’s really cool. I haven’t tried them out, but I plan to.
“I don’t use it; I use my vehicle to get to and from home. I’ve never used it and I don’t even know how to use it, to be honest.”
