After a successful trial run during the first half of the spring semester, SGA has asked administrators to make the weekend BearLine route permanent.
The Pink Route, which runs to downtown Springfield from 6 pm to 2 am on Friday and Saturday nights, has averaged over 350 riders per weekend with no reported incidents. The shuttle makes stops at Park Central Square, Plaster Student Union, Hammons Student Center, Scholars House, Kentwood Hall, and Greek Row.
SGA’s suggestion comes as a response to the high number of students utilizing the route during the trial run as well as the need for a safe mode of transportation between the downtown area and campus on weekend evenings.
The Pink Route is funded by Residence Life and Services and the Department of Safety and Transportation.
