Improvements to on-campus shuttle routes

Shuttle schedule and routes are being changed to offer more reliable, faster express service from East Campus and Cedar Dell. Routes have been reworked to provide more consistent service from high-traffic areas: 2 express shuttles, 1 half loop.

Trip times will be cut in half with the new schedule, resulting in more shuttles available to you throughout the day and night when you really need them.
