Construction and road closures have affected the Crimson Ride routes. Check route maps for updates.

The campus transit service will change for the summer beginning May 6. Crimson Ride buses run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 348-RIDE runs from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Monday through Friday with 24-hour service Saturday and Sunday. Only one bus will run on each primary route (Blue, Bronze, Crimson, Gold 1 and 2, Green, and Silver 1 and 2) for a total of eight.

Due to road construction and the closure of Second Avenue between Bryant Drive and University Boulevard, the Crimson route detours. The Crimson route changes for the summer by adding a stop at the trolley stop on Bryant Drive in front of the Bryant Museum and the Moody Stop (also on the Blue route) on University Boulevard.

Due to road construction and the closure of Fourth Street, the Gold 1 and Gold 2 routes detour. The Gold 1 route changes this summer and for the duration of Hewson Hall construction by eliminating the stops at the ten Hoor Parking Deck, and also at Fourth Street and Publix.

The Gold 2 route changes this summer by eliminating the stops at Friedman Hall, UPS and Publix. All other routes remain the same, subject to various campus construction projects.
