negotiations

U-Pass fees will go up in September as the City of Ottawa approved the continuation of the universal transit program for the 2015–16 academic year and beyond. Students will pay $192.70 a semester starting in the fall, as opposed to the $188 they paid this year.

The Student Federation of the University of Ottawa (SFUO) and the Graduate Students Association (GSAÉD) have reopened negotiations with OC Transpo seeking to renew their contract for September 2015 and settle on a deal for a summer U-Pass.
