Starting June 3, the Facilities Engineering Services Section will initiate a pilot taxi and shuttle program that will balance the needs of all laboratory personnel (employees and nonemployees). The pilot will run from June 3 to Aug. 2. After Aug. 2, another schedule will be announced that will incorporate taxi route changes to facilitate the closing of the east parking lot of Wilson Hall for the Integrated Engineering Research Center construction.

In coordination with the Global Services office, we have developed a morning and afternoon route that will affect the current taxi service operation. The new schedule will have multiple options for passengers needing to travel within our site. The initial schedule will be as indicated below. However, please note that we may alter it depending on location usage. Changes to the route stops and times will be communicated via the route driver and through posted notifications at Aspen East, Wilson Hall and News at Work. The primary changes will occur between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m., and after 4 p.m.  During those periods, there will be only a scheduled route reflected in the schedule below. Between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., the taxi will operate as it has in the past.

The shuttle routes will be very precise; the bus will not be able to wait for you if you are not ready at the designated times. If you have any questions, please contact the Distribution Office at x4225.
