Temporary Disruptions to Campus Transportation Services
In an effort to proactively communicate with the campus community, the University’s Office of Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) is asking its riders to prepare for short-term disruptions to its usual trolley and shuttle services for the remainder of the Spring 2023 semester.
Due to an ongoing CDL driver shortage, PTS is struggling to consistently fill its planned shifts, leading to last-minute changes to trolley and shuttle routes. In the past few weeks, this has led the office to delay the start of the Blue and Orange ’Cuse Trolley loops until the afternoon hours or reduce service to one or more shuttle routes.
As soon as the office becomes aware of the need to delay or cancel any of its services, it will quickly post the information to the front page of its website and share the information on its Twitter and Instagram. At the same time, PTS will also provide an alternative shuttle or service for community members to utilize—i.e., a parallel Centro route or its own late-night safety shuttle service.
While PTS continues to make every effort to minimize disruption to the campus community in the coming weeks, the department will continue its hiring efforts and hopes to be able to return to its full complement of drivers by the start of the Fall 2023 semester.
