Service Change - South College & College Loop posted Monday, January 30, 2017

Modified service due to Service change
Affects: Begins: 2017-01-30 07:45:00 (CST)
Ends: 2018-03-30 07:45:00 (CDT)

In order to ameliorate not only the overcrowding being experienced on the College Loop Line but to also maximize the usage of available carrying capacity on the South College Line, Tiger Transit has instructed our vendor to have each in service bus assigned to the South College Line also provide service for the Beacon transit stop currently serviced by the College Loop Line. This additional service is being provided inbound to campus only and as a reminder, the South College Line services the Mell St. Transit Hub on campus not the Student Center Hub on Heisman Drive. Be advised, the outbound service from campus to The Beacon transit stop is only provided by the College Loop Line. This attempt to alleviate some of the overcrowding on the College Loop Line is being conducted on a trial basis during the 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM time period. Should future reviews of the line data show that this additional service provided by the South College Line for the Beacon transit stop is not warranted, the resources will be shifted to where they are required the most.
