TEN/Tile THE PRESS ED ITO- AL More buses • • A soultion? Despite the fact that the parking situation at the State Unlversity College at Cortland bas been a problem for years, nothing is ever done to try and solve it. It seems like when it comes to the parking problem there's a lot of talk and no action. People have suggested that more parking lots be built or even a parking garage, but since there is no place to build these facilties, nor are the funds avaUable, these ideas aren't feasible. A feasible idea, however, would be for the cam- pm bus to expand m route and go off campus to accom- modate more students. Students have said they would use a bus if one existed. This could cut down on the number of students' cars piled up on campus, and yes, students cars will have to be piled up if an alter- native isn't found soon. The cost of gas for the bus is a minor problem that could easily be overcome if students paid a small fee for the ride. They'd probably pay more to keep gas in their cars anyway. Even though there is no way to send this bus out to pick up faculty members, the number of fa~ulty members' cars on campus could also easily be decreased. If faculty living in the same area could car pool, not only would the number of cars on campus decrease, but they could probably save money as well. To both solutions, people will complain that they want to liave the ability to come and go as they please. Both faculty and students might say they'd have to leave earlier to catch their ride, but anything beats driving around campus for an hour looking for a parking place. Besides, if we don't all give a little now the problem is just going to keep on growing.
