Will it become harder to get to the University of Minnesota?

Never mind the challenge of getting in to the University of Minnesota or even paying for it. Getting to the Twin Cities campus could become more difficult.

Noticed this in Dan Olson's story yesterday about potential Metro Transit cutbacks:

Officials say the highly-used service to the University of Minnesota, which constitutes most of Metro Transit's direct bus service, would be eliminated.

All of this is, of course, dependent on what kind of budget deal emerges from the Capitol.

How dependent are you on transit service to campus?
