WWU Transportation Services is hosting a drop-in online open house Wednesday, Jan. 27, from 1-5 p.m. to get feedback from students about the student Late Night Shuttle service.
The open house will give students an opportunity to provide input into the Student Late Night Shuttle Program. Students can drop in anytime between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. to learn and ask questions about the different possibilities for the shuttle service and to comment on the service that they would like to have at Western.
There are three ways to provide this service: 1. As a fixed-route shuttle service; 2. As an on-demand service like a taxi/Uber/Lyft; or 3. As a hybrid fixed-route and on-demand service.
Before the pandemic, two shuttles ran each night on a fixed route after WTA buses had stopped running (Mon-Sat, 11 p.m.-3 a.m. and Sunday 11 p.m.-2 a.m.). Due to reduced in-person services at WWU, the Late Night Shuttle is not currently running. Usually the Student Late Night Shuttle Service is available to all students who live in Bellingham during the academic year. It is paid for by students who are registered for 6 or more credits as part of the Alternative Transportation Fee.
The open house will take place on Zoom with Meeting ID 997 5920 5174
Students who are unable to attend the open house can share their comments and ideas by emailing email@example.com or calling 360-650-2945 and leaving a message.
