It is important to remember that ALL students pay the cost of the UPASS, whether they use the bus or not (many students don't even live in Hamilton).

This means that the true discount per user is much less than the savings of the UPASS over the regular pass. It is more the case of some students subsidizing others than a heavy subsidy of students by the HSR.

In any case, it is pretty standard to offer special rates on transit to students, just as lower rates are offered to seniors.
