Monday, campus buses officially returned to the routes used before construction on the Central Corridor light-rail began in 2011.

University Parking and Transportation Services spokeswoman Jacqueline Brudlos said the newly reinstated Washington Avenue Bridge Circulator runs every 15 minutes from 7:30 a.m. until 10 a.m., every 7.5 minutes between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

After that time, it resumes its morning frequency time of every 15 minutes.

She said there have been no changes to the route or frequency of the East Bank Circulator. It remains every 10 minutes from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and runs every 20 minutes after 5 p.m.

Additionally, the Campus Connector, East Bank Circulator and Washington Avenue Bridge Circulator have extended their hours.

Until Dec. 19, or the end of the fall semester, these buses run until 2 a.m.

Brudlos said next semester a “new plan” could potentially be reviewed and created. She said students should keep an eye out for possible changes.

 The St. Paul Circulator’s route and frequency continues unchanged, stopping at 4:45 p.m.
