Shuttle Schedule

Shuttles are numbered. Look for signs at each stop.  The shuttle will have a colored placard in the windshield and in the entry door window for easier identification of our shuttles.

We have added two new stops on campus. All shuttles will be stopping at the Branscomb Auditorium.  This will provide coverage for Branscomb, Christoverson, and Nursing.  We have also added a stop at the corner of Duke Place and Columbia Way. This stop will provide coverage to the Publix Commons and to our Cafeteria.  We will continue to provide our current stops at Harvard and in front of the Library.

The Blue Shuttle will be at the pickup point of LHA at the top of the hour, 20 after the hour and 40 after the hour. The Blue Shuttle will make the following stops on campus in this exact order:

The Blue Shuttle will depart LHA at either the top of the hour, 20 after the hour or 40 after the hour.
• Branscomb
• Library

• Return to LHA

The Red Shuttle will be at the pickup point for LMV at the top of the hour, 20 after the hour and 40 after the hour. The Red Shuttle will make a stop at Colony Arms directly after leaving Lake Morton Village. We ask for all students at Colony Arms to be at the pickup point the same times listed above, as the distance between both apartments is negligible.
