Why do shuttle routes change?
Shuttle routes are evaluated at least annually due to changes in traffic patterns, street changes, new locations on campus, safety considerations, and ridership surveys. Routes are also revised in order to make the most effective use of the annual funding resources allocated to the Shuttle program by the University.

What if I need a ride in the evenings and Iím not on the shuttle routes?
When walking on campus or nearby neighborhoods during the evening, you are encouraged to walk in groups. If your destination is not located near a shuttle stop and you are apprehensive about walking alone, contact Public Safety at 280-2104 to request a pedestrian escort or transport. While you are waiting, be aware of your surroundings and attempt to stay in a building or in lighted areas until your escort arrives.

Why arenít the shuttles always on time?
Shuttle schedules can be interrupted occasionally because of traffic congestion, street constructions/detours, weather conditions, and over crowded shuttles during peak times. Please recognize that many delays are caused by situations beyond the control of the shuttle drivers.
