Area transit provides
service for handicapped
Through the E-Z Rider service and
fixed accessible route buses, the Chapel
Hill Transit system has provided
transportation to the community's
handicapped citizens for 10 years.
The E-Z Rider service includes two
lift-equip vans and several sedan
vehicles. E-Z Rider, which is demand
responsive, picks up disabled people at
their homes in Chapel Hill and Car
rboro on weekdays. Of the 300 people
who are eligible to use this service, about
100 use the E-Z Rider service daily. To
be eligible for this service, a person must
have a mobility impairment certified by
Bob Godding, director of transpor
tation for Chapel Hill Transit, said tht
the first accessible fixed route buses
were purchased in 1980. These buses
have lifts to carry wheelchairs. Fourteen
accessible fixed bus routes are in use.
Handicapped people pay half the
regular fare to use these buses. Students
and youth receive the same discount.
The transit system issues a quarterly
report which includes patron evaluation
CGC spending time on money
By DAVID SCHMIDT
Agreeing to be more judicious when
allocating money this year, members of
the Campus Governing Council's
Finance Committee Tuesday night
delayed funding for a campus voter
registration incentive drive until more
information is provided.
Members also discussed at length a
plan to sell stock owned by the CGC.
"I want to establish really firm
credibility and efficiency in the Finance
Committee," Chairman Wyatt Closs
said. "I don't want anything railroaded
through, if possible."
In opening remarks, Closs also
expressed a desire to support Student
Legal Services with a new student fee
or fee increase, have Finance Commit
tee members pass a test on campus
treasury laws, and get bulk postage rates
for student organizations and offer
them fund-raising workshops.
The Student Affairs Committee
failed to get $550 in funds for its voter
registration incentive drive when Ron
Everett tabled the motion so Closs could
receive more information about its
specific plans. The proposal would
promote competition among CGC
districts, for instance to register
student voters, with some sort of prize
for the area accdmplishirrg the most: 1 "
"Registration has its inherent incen
tives," Kenny Williams said. You can't
pay people to vote. That's ridiculous."
"It's hard to approve without a plan,"
Everett said. "It would just be throwing

The E-Z Rider service is particularly
useful to off-campus students. Gwen
Howell, a graduate student in the
School of Education, said she had no
difficulty receiving authorization to use
the vehicles. Howell, who has used E
Z Rider for two years, said that the
service is very beneficial to her. "It has
allowed me to continue going to school
when I might not have been able to."
Gary Sidbury, a graduate student in
Public Health, has used the E-Z Rider
service for four years. Sidbury said that
while E-Z Rider is a good service to
have, he would like to be able to reserve
fixed times to use the vehicles. Bookings
are done on a first come, first serve
basis, Sidbury said.
Thandi Ziqubu, a patron of E-Z
Rider since last August, said she has
no problems with the service. "If I call
them in good time, I have no problems
arranging for them to pick me up. I
don't expect them to be at my beck and
call." Ziqubu, a graduate student in the
School of Pharmacy, said she would
not have managed without E-Z Rider
because the bus stop was far away.
The money the CGC has to spend
this year totals $46,955.83, reported
Student Body Treasurer Allen Robert
son, but the CGC will try to avoid
dipping the general reserve below
$40,000. Out of $225,350 received in
fees, the budget already has approp
riated $225,000. "We expect this year
to be a washout," he said.
Robertson suggested selling the $171
of General Motors stock purchased by
the CGC more than 10 years ago.
Treasury laws do not address how to
do it, however, so Harris motioned to
give the student body treasurer the
power to "liquidate marketable resour
ces" in GM by Jan. 3 1 . The stock earned
just $9 in dividends last year.

CGA: banner stolen out of fear

The banner, which cost about $20,
was strung between two trees in the Pit
and advertised a CGA membership
drive lasting through Friday, as well as
an all-campus dance with free beer at
Craige dormitory from 9 p.m. until 2
a.m. Friday. Salak said he believes it
was stolen sometime after dark.
A homophobic attitude, or fear of
homosexuals, is evident at UNC.
especially when the CGA requests
funding from the Campus Governing
Council each year, Salak said. People
attending the CGC budget hearings
often protest the fact that the CGA gets
any money at all, and the CGA also
gets prank phone calls at its office in
the Student Union, he said.
