Cornell to Retain Free TCAT Bus Passes for Freshmen

The University will work to retain free TCAT bus passes for first-year students, President David Skorton announced Friday to a group of approximately 40 student protesters.

Some students — worried that Skorton would not have responded to a University Assembly resolution supporting the passes before the end of the academic year — prepared to stage a “study-in” in Day Hall Friday. The students ultimately did not enter the building because Skorton publically addressed them and announced his support outside.
