What's new for Fall 2017?

Full fall service begins Monday, August 28.

Please note the following changes:

  • Route 37 has been streamlined - it will now continue straight on W Campus Dr at Children's Center and go directly to Kirkhof Center.
  • Route 48 will have a new stop on the north side of W Campus Dr by Meadows Crossing (between the 2 37/85 stops on the south side of W Campus Dr).
  • Route 48 will now head south on new road west of Campus West and continue the route on Pierce St.
  • Route 48 will no longer stop at Country Place/Hillcrest. Due to the construction of this new road (between W Campus Dr & Pierce St, west of 48th Ave) the bus can no longer turn around on W Campus Dr, so the Country Place/Hillcrest stop has been removed.
