Too Big...

We have a late night bus system in Greenville, NC. As an ECU student, I'm aware that the majority of those using the bus route are underage--however, you still have to understand that college students will drink, even if you crack down on underage drinking. ECU seems to be more concerned about the safety of the students, rather than things that they can't always control. Our bus is funded by the school, and picks up at the major student housing complexes in Greenville. Since the majority of students live in the same area, it works wonderfully. However, Wilmington is such a big area that it would be almost impossible to have a bus run from downtown to campus and then to "heavily populated areas of the city". The whole city is heavily populated! Growing up there, I realized that it takes at least 30 minutes to get from one side of town to the other--also, there is no common drop-off where students can walk home. More than likely, they will park their car to catch the bus, then have to drive it back home. I think that defeats the purpose...
