ADJUSTMENT ON KOROPE TRANSPORTATION FARE
Scarcity of vehicles, which was largely caused by the withdrawal of some Korope Drivers from our campus, was the biggest reason behind the transportation challenges experienced last session.
After series of negotiation with the Korope Drivers (whose initial proposal was a 100% increment (I.e ₦100 fare)) on campus and having reasoned with the impact of inflation in recent years, we have met and resolved for a slight adjustment in the price of Korope from PS to Terminus, to attract more buses and alleviate the hydra-headed transportation problem on campus.
We negotiated the proposed ₦100 fare from Terminus – school park to a ₦10 increment for bus stops beyond Sanrab and no increment for PS – Sanrab. This simply means that PS – Sanrab/Terminus is now ₦60 , while PS – Oke-Odo – Sanrab remains at ₦50 .
While we understand the financial burden this will have on students, we appeal to our esteemed members to consider this new development, putting in mind the importance of the Korope Drivers on transportation on our campus. The association has also added 20 new buses to the fleet already on ground in order to continue rendering quality services to the better by far students.
The new price is to take effect from Monday, 14th October 2019. However, we urge the student populace to vehemently resist any form of extortion beyond these agreed prices and bus stops. Any inappropriate behavior or acts of extortion should be reported to any official of the Student Union.
Please be rest assured that we remain devoted to advancing the welfare of our students, and we are passionate about the ease of transportation of every Unilorites.
