UT Shuttles, and School-Related Adjustments
All UT Shuttles will transition from summer service to full service schedules.
In addition to the traditional route lettering designations
per route (ex. FA, WC), Capital Metro will being utilizing route numbers for
each UT Shuttle, numbered 640-681. Riders are encouraged to check the digital
marquee at the front of buses as the vehicle approaches before boarding. (ex.
640 FA, 642 WC)
Also, as of this fall, Local MetroBuses will replace some UT-branded shuttles.
Pickle Research Campus Shuttle (PRC)
The UT PRC Shuttle Route will be replaced by MetroRapid
Route 803. Students, faculty and staff will be able to ride MetroRapid Route 803
Burnet/South Lamar with their UT ID. The new MetroRapid UT Research Campus Station is located within the Research Campus along Road A.
MetroRapid service will offer improved reliability, and increased
frequency and days of operation to the Research Campus. MetroRapid service will
be offered seven days a week, compared to the current weekday-only service
offered on the PRC Shuttle.
The transition of service will also increase the efficiency
of transit service by reducing UT Shuttle costs. Travel time from the Research
Campus to main campus will remain about the same compared to the PRC Shuttle
and will be 20 percent faster than Route 3 Burnet/Manchaca.
MetroRapid Route 803 will operate with signal priority
technology, real-time arrival information*, multiple-door boarding, mobile
ticketing, upgraded stations and free onboard Wi-Fi.
Select school-related trips will be reinstated on the following routes to meet in-session demand:
E-Bus service will resume regular schedule with fall semester.
The E-Bus stop location will be moved from the current location on 7
Street between Red River and Neches to the northwest corner of Colorado and 6th Street, near the current Night Owl stop on 6th and Congress.
