Dear Huskie Bus
I would like to inform you that as of the beginning of next semester there will
be a number of changes to the bus routes for this system. We will be printing a
new route booklet for next semester which will be available in the Campus Life
Building, Holmes Student Center, City Hall, and the Residence Hall front desks.
The online system will be updated, as well as the online list of routes. All
Changes may be seen at
First, buses 1, 2, 3, 4, 4A, 4B, 4C, & 5 will be ending by 7 PM Monday through
Second, the Weekend Circle Routes are being renamed the Evening Circle routes
and will only run on Monday through Thursday from 7 PM to midnight, and Friday 6
PM to Midnight. These routes will now be numbered; 9 will be the Evening circle
Left, 10 will be the evening circle Right, and 11 will be the evening circle
Third, the new Evening Circle North will be running in the opposite direction of
the previous Weekend Circle North. The bus will also be picking up on the
opposite side of the street for many of these stops, so please check the route
booklet or online system next semester.
Fourth, the 7 route will revert to last year’s form (you can see this in the
Break Service 7 route) and there will only be one bus.
Fifth, the only bus routes that will run on the weekends will be Weekend/Break
Service 7, and Weekend/Break Service 12 (previously the 9). These routes will
run from 9 AM to Midnight on Saturday and Sunday.
All of the above changes are only to last until the end of the
Spring 2013 Semester.
changes are permanent:
The prices for
the Elburn Shuttle have increased. Students are now $5, faculty are $7, and the
general public are $9.
Finally we will
be adding a stop at the corner of Stadium Drive South and Stadium Drive East at
the bench for the 8 route.
Thank you for
your interest in our Bus System, if you have any questions please feel free to
