Wichita State adds shuttle bus to alleviate parking problems

Students and staff at Wichita State University have another place they can go to park, and ride to campus.

WSU has leased a 240-space parking lot at 21st Street and Oliver, WSU said in a prepared statement.

The spaces are south of the Extra Space Storage facility, half a mile from the main campus. WSU Shuttle System buses will take people to and from there to the main campus.

WSU is already shuttling people from the parking lot at the Hughes Metropolitan Complex at 29th Street and Oliver.

Parking is often a challenge during school semesters, and the university shut down some campus spaces for new construction. A new permit parking system begins on Monday, with permits required to park on the main campus during weekday classes.

No permits are required to park in the park-and-ride lots, the university said.

The bus shuttle system employs two routes and 13 stops on the campus and at satellite buildings.
