LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — Officials say University of Louisiana at Lafayette students may soon ride to and from campus on Lafayette city buses.

The Advocate reports the Lafayette City-Parish Council is set to vote Aug. 19 on an agreement with the university that could add up to five city buses to ferry students between campus and the parking lot at Cajun Field, adding to the university’s fleet of 11 buses and three shuttles.

The enhanced transit service could be in place by Aug. 25 and start carrying students during the fall semester. The deal also would allow students, faculty and staff to ride city buses anywhere in Lafayette for free by presenting their university ID card.

Officials say the university will lease the buses and use drivers from their Office of Transportation Services.
