LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — Students at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette will vote this month on a fee increase that would help the school's Office of Transportation Services purchase new buses and expand transportation options.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1iqL71a ) the student referendum will be added to the Student Government Association elections ballot on March 31 and April 1.

If passed, the measure would raise the student-assessed transportation fee from $25 to $50.

SGA President David Neef says the current fee was approved in 2002 and is not enough to expand transportation services or even to maintain the existing system.
