The campus transit service will change for the summer beginning May 7. Crimson Ride (buses) will run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and 348-RIDE vans will run from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Only one bus will run on each primary route (Blue, Bronze, Crimson, Gold 1 & 2, Green, and Silver 1 & 2) for a total of eight. Because of road construction and the closure of Second Avenue between Bryant Drive and University Boulevard, the Crimson Route will detour. The Crimson route changed for the summer by adding a stop at the trolley stop on Bryant Drive in front of the Museum and the Moody Stop (also on the Blue Route) on University Boulevard. All other routes will remain the same.
