Accordion-style buses replace all shorter Campus Connectors

Today is the first day 60-foot, accordion-style buses will be used for all Campus Connector bus services.

Previously, the larger buses were used only for limited-stop bus service.

Lori Ann Vicich, marketing manager for Parking and Transportation Services, said the change will move more people around campus. The 60-foot bus holds 51 seats, whereas the 40-foot bus holds 39 seats.

No other changes to bus service will be made. Vicich said students can differentiate between limited-stop service and regular service by a sign on the bus that clearly states what kind of service is provided.

“The point is to improve service,” Vicich said.
