Answers to your questions
I use a wheelchair. Can I ride the shuttle?
Yes. All Roo Express shuttles are equipped with wheelchair-lift equipment. You do not need to make arrangements ahead of time to ride the regular routes, but special services will also be available for those who have additional needs – more information is available in this brochure.
How is the University paying for the Roo Express Shuttle?
Students who take more than five credit hours are assessed a Transportation Fee ($175 for the fall and spring semester, $120 for the summer). For that fee, students can request a parking permit (it's available at no additional charge), and ride the Roo Express shuttle. Transportation Fee funds help pay for:
- the shuttle,
- the upkeep of decks and parking lots,
- and the loans (actually bonds) that the University took out to build its newest decks.
