Wichita State University plans to add a second route to the new bus shuttle system for the spring 2014 semester, the university said in a written statement Wednesday.
The new route will include stops at Fairmount Towers and Wheatshocker Apartments, and at Devlin Hall near 21st Street and Yale.
The Housing Route will begin service on Monday, Jan. 13, and run a 20-minute, on-campus circuit beginning at Fairmount Towers from 7:30 a.m.-10 p.m., Monday through Friday, the WSU statement said.
Students asked for the new route, the statement said.
WSU also plans to build a new shuttle stop for both routes in the southwest quarter of the campus. That stop, expected to open mid-semester, will be on Perimeter Road near the Duerksen Fine Arts Center, the WSU statement said
The bus shuttle was installed starting in August to alleviate parking concerns after the university began building a new residential building in what had been a parking lot near Morrison Hall on the main campus. WSU asked people to consider parking at the lot at the Eugene M. Hughes Center at 29th and Oliver, and take buses from there.
