University printers to default to double-sided pages
Scratch paper will have to be found elsewhere now that printers across campus will be set to a new default: double-sided. Te changed setting will go live this week, meaning the default of all printers in Watson, Budig, Anschutz and public labs will be set to double-sided, or du-plex, printing. Individual schools’ printers will not be changed.Te sustainable idea was brought to KU Information echnology (KU I) by the Student Senate to reduce the use of resources while also saving the University money on paper. David Day of KU I said the only dis-advantage of the change is catching people oﬀ-guard, so signs will be placed on printers to alert students. Instructions on how to print single-sided will also be included.Te Student Senate’s pri-mary objective was to re-duce paper, which will cost the environment and uni- versity less.“Recycling rates keep go-ing up,” Day said. “Te eas-ier you make it for people to be sustainable, the more likely they’re going to do it.”Day said that 2.74 million pages were printed last year and of that, only about 608,000 were double-sided. Tat means almost 78 percent of printed pages were on one piece of pa-per.Easan Selvan, associate direc-tor for support services, calcu-lated the savings if the 78 per-cent were double-sided instead. Te change would save 11.5 trees. It’s also the equivalent of turning a 60 watt light bulb oﬀ for more than 30 years and removing two metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions out of the atmosphere.“A small change by each in-dividual student collectively is a huge change for the environ-ment,” Day said.Te air will be spared but stu-dent’s pocket change won’t be because the price students pay is per page of ink. “If it all worked out perfect-ly, we’d love to see the cost of printing a page go down for students in the future,” Mark Savoy said, an author of the res-olution and third-year law stu-dent from Overland Park.“We also recognize that we don’t have control over that,” Savoy said. “We just know the money will be spent on better things.”Day said funding for printing resources comes from KU Iand libraries. Te savings willgo toward supporting current and new student initiatives, forexample, the charging stations
Texting service beneﬁts bus riders
Students now have the abil-ity to text the bus to ﬁnd out when it will arrive. With new GPS trackers in place, university and city buses can now transmit ar-rival times more accurately to riders with a service called “Where’s My Bus?”A simple text to the bus ser- vice’s provided phone number — (785) 312-2414 — with the stop number, which is lo-cated on the stop’s sign or at lawrencetransit.org/wheres-my-bus, gives riders a more accurate prediction of the bus’ arrival time. With this service, riders should have a shorter wait be-cause they can plan around a more precise arrival time. Before, riders could only guess when the bus would arrive based on the estimated time given on the sign. With this new technology, bus rid-ers can know exactly when to expect the bus. “It will make it easier for people to use this service,” Lawrence Public ransit Ad-ministrator Rob Nugent said. Lawrence is not alone in providing a service that can give real-time arrivals to its riders. Nugent said larger cit-ies pioneered the idea.Although the service will be more convenient for riders, Nugent warns that attempting to catch the bus last minute could still cause people to miss the bus, even with the texting service. “I think the major drawback would be that people may use this service to run out the last minute to catch the bus,” Nu-gent said. “Usually, when you ride the bus, you tell people to go out earlier to catch the bus. Tat could be a problem for some people. You still need to be out there earlier.” In addition to riders leaving too late, To Nguyen, a fresh-man from Overland Park, used the service on Friday and found it takes more than a couple of minutes for the text line to respond with bus times. “I wanted to check when the bus would come so I wouldn’t have to wait so long in the cold,” Nguyen said. “I sent the text at 9:04 and it came back at 9:10. By the time I checked it, I was already on the bus.”Nugent said that this is because many of the stops have multiple routes passing through them, and it helps to text both the stop number as well as the route number. When riders only text the stop number, they will receive the times for all of the routes passing through, which could take more time. Tough it was slow for Nguyen, she said that it could help students save time. “In the future, I hope that it is fast enough so that more students will ﬁnd it useful,” Nguyen said. “It’s a matter of saving a minute or two doing
City and university riders can now text (785) 312-2414 to ﬁnd bus arrival times.In the text, riders must type in the stop number (found on the stop’s sign), and may type in the route number for a more accurate estimate. Ex: If a student wants to take a bus from stop 277(GSP) on bus 43, the student would text “277, 43” to the phone number to receive arrival times.Riders should still arrive a few minutes before the allotted time to ensure that they will not miss the bus.
