Park-N-Ride and UDASH Buses Provide Easy Access to Campus
It will be easier than ever to access The University of Montana campus when Park-N-Ride and UDASH buses resume service on Aug. 29. Both buses, operated by the Associated Students of the UM Office of Transportation, are free and open to the public.
The buses offer service to three Park-N-Ride lots: East Broadway, South Campus and College of Technology.
Buses from the South Campus lot to the mountain campus run every five to seven minutes, and shuttles between the mountain campus and the College of Technology run every 15 minutes. The East Broadway Park-N-Ride buses will offer increased frequency this year, providing service every 10 minutes.
The UDASH runs Monday through Saturday between South Campus and downtown beginning at 7 p.m. The schedule is as follows:
- Monday through Wednesday: every 30 minutes until midnight.
- Thursday: every 30 minutes until 2:30 a.m.
- Friday and Saturday: every 15 minutes until 2:30 a.m.
Complete autumn schedules for both Park-N-Ride and UDASH can be found at http://life.umt.edu/asum/asum_agencies/Transportation/.
New bicycle racks, donated by the Missoula Bicycle Pedestrian Office, will be installed at the Grizzly Pool. Additional racks have been ordered and will be placed throughout campus.
The Office of Transportation reminds people biking on campus to slow down and please alert others when passing. When walking on campus remember to walk in groups of two to avoid blocking traffic.
The construction project at Arthur and 5th and 6th streets is underway and projected to be completed by the beginning of autumn semester. The project will separate through traffic from campus traffic, enhance cyclist and pedestrian movements and improve safety.
