Schedule Changes Coming To University Housing Shuttle System

Effective January 4, 2016, the following changes will be made to University Housing Shuttle System:

The new system will feature 26-passenger ADA-accessible shuttle buses during all hours of operation, but will be supplemented by high-capacity buses during the “Peak Hours” indicated below.

Hours of Operation (effective January 25, 2016):

Day(s) Hours of Operation Capitol/Humboldt Hours Peak Hours
Monday-Wednesday 6am-1am 6am-9pm 7am-6pm
Thursday 6am-3am 6am-9pm 7am-6pm
Friday 6am-3am 6am-6pm 7am-2pm

Sunday 9am-1am NONE NONE

Shuttle Stops

SOUTHBOUND NORTHBOUND

2. Cunningham Hall 2. Cambridge Commons (SW Corner)
3. Golda Meir Library 3. Kenilworth Square Apartments
4. Kenilworth Square Apartments 4. UWM Student Union
5. Cambridge Commons 5. Sandburg Residence Hall

* = indicates a scheduled layover

Expected Impact: University Housing Residents

  • Residents of Kenilworth Square Apartments will see more frequent shuttle service, as it is now a stop on both Southbound and Northbound routes.
  • Residents of Cambridge Commons will have the option of boarding a northbound bus on the SW corner of Cambridge & North, rather than riding first to RiverView. This should give residents a more consistent time estimation for trips to the Kenwood Campus.
  • Residents of RiverView should encounter fewer issues with having to wait for multiple buses to accommodate all students waiting. The new route should allow for an empty bus to start being filled at RiverView, before proceeding to Cambridge and Kenilworth, and then heading north to Kenwood Campus.
  • All residents heading south from Kenwood Campus should keep in mind that most U-Park riders disembark at the Cunningham Hall or Golda Meir Library stops. This means that the most reliable stop for boarding to South Campus will be the Golda Meir Library stop.

Expected Impact: U-Park Commuters

  • Commuters using the Capitol/Humboldt U-Park lot will see shuttles arriving/departing on a more frequent basis. Commuters heading North from Kenwood Campus should keep in mind that most residential students disembark at the UWM Student Union and Sandburg stops. This means that the most reliable stop for boarding to the U-Park lot will be the Sandburg stop.
