In response to employees' interest for a transportation link at night between their work sites and on-campus parking locations, a pilot for expanded shuttle service will begin on Aug. 1.
The service (operated by MUHA Meducare) connects the Clinical Sciences Building with the President Street, Bee Street and Courtenay Drive parking garages and other destinations on demand.
The pilot will operate from 5 to 7 a.m. Monday through Friday and from 7 to 11 p.m. during August.
The planned stops are the Clinical Sciences Building ramp, Bee Street garage, Ashley River Tower and Courtenay garages. Drivers will have discretion to go to other places on demand as long as the destination is within the inner campus. MUSC students, patients and visitors are authorized to ride subject to the same restriction.
The existing shuttle bus service linking the campus with the off-site parking locations and operated by University Transportation and the Public Safety Escort program will continue to operate as usual.
After 30 days, the pilot program will be evaluated for expansion, modification, or cancelation.
