Blue and Green campus shuttles modify routes
Posted August 31, 2007; 12:56 p.m.
In response to input from the University community, the Blue and Green lines of the campus shuttle system have modified some of their routes and stops, effective Sept. 4.
As a direct result of the changes, there will be increased frequency to Lot 21 near Jadwin Gymnasium, increased frequency along Washington Road, the addition of Nassau Street as a destination and the connection with a New Jersey Transit bus stop. These limited improvements have been made in order to better serve the University community as well as to move toward a more effective and comprehensive campus transit system that is expected to begin July 1, 2008.
The changes are:
- The North Campus/Firestone stop located on William Street has been replaced by two new stops. A stop at Robertson Hall on the east side of Washington Road will provide access to the north area of campus, including Firestone Library. The second new stop is located on Nassau Street at Charlton Street and is within walking distance of restaurants, a market and other retail establishments. It also serves as a transfer stop to the New Jersey Transit bus. The Blue and Green line shuttles now will travel on Nassau Street between Washington Street and Olden Street.
- The Shapiro Walk stop on Olden Street has been relocated to the entrance of the Friend Center on Olden Street. In case of inclement weather, passengers may wait inside the Friend Center lobby until a shuttle arrives.
- A new stop for the Green line has been added to a previously existing Blue line stop located between the Frist Campus Center and Guyot Hall.
- Both Green and Blue lines will stop at Lot 21.
