[Donna Rose], who's studying American Sign Language and deaf studies [at Vancouver Community College], says financially pressed students would greatly benefit from cheaper transit. "It's so hard with what student loans are today. They are the highest in years. I was talking about it the other day with a friend in class and she actually had groceries she had to return because she had to buy her buss pass... she didn't have enough money left after getting food. I think she had four pizzas and had to return two," explained Rose.
