The Department of Facilities Operations has changed the shuttle schedule at the University of Michigan-Dearborn to increase traffic between the expanding campus.

The new schedule, which took effect October 12, added a shuttle that only goes to and from the university’s main campus and Fairlane Center Monday through Thursday. The new addition will start at 8 a.m. and go until 6:30 p.m.

Carol Glick, Executive Director for Facilities Operations, said the department is trying to make everyone’s experience smoother as the campus expands.

“As we continue to expand our offerings at the Fairlane Campus and increase our residential population, we anticipate future efforts to standardize scheduling blocks,” Glick said, “In the meantime, we will continue a rigorous collection and analysis of shuttle rider data and anticipate tweaking the schedule further as we continue to work to meet your needs.”

She added that the new schedule decreases the travel time between stops. Shuttles should only take ten minutes to get from one stop to the next.

“We are working very hard to get feedback from students,” Glick said.
