Campus Loop Shuttle Service Update
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
During the opening days of the fall semester, the Campus Loop Shuttle was at times unable to enter the College Street cul-de-sac (which serves as its hub) and this may have led some to believe that the shuttle is not operating this semester. This is not the case. The shuttle is operating during the fall semester, and it should be able to move freely from the College Street cul-de-sac to the Polsky Building from this point forward.

For more details regarding the route or operation times of the shuttle, please visit the Parking Services website at http://www.uakron.edu/parking/ .
