Options abound for campus travel

One of the many Metro Transit and Brown line bus stops on campus, located along Goldsworth Drive between Valley I and II.

Metro bus service has modified its services in the Kalamazoo area due to COVID-19, resulting in fewer stops to the Parkview Campus. Western Michigan University’s Office of Marketing and Strategic Communications sent an email to the WMU community about the changes.  

The Route 25-Parkview bus will make pickups and drop-offs to Floyd Hall every 40 minutes Monday through Thursday, beginning at 6:45 a.m. and ending at 10 p.m.  and todayFriday, Oct. 9, only until 9 p.m. Fridays thereafter will run 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

The Route 19-Ring Road bus will run Monday through Thursday with no changes, 8 a.m. until 9:55 p.m. and end earlier on Fridays at 5:55 p.m. 

Additionally, starting Monday, Oct. 12, Metro is stopping all other routes at 6 p.m. No Sunday service will be provided until further notice. 

Riders should monitor changes to Metro’s schedule this week and for coming weeks. Specific route information including modified schedules and regular updates on public transportation is available here through the myStop mobile app and Facebook. 

The email mentioned that Metro continues to thoroughly clean buses and requires passengers to wear masks that cover both nose and mouth, use hand sanitizer when boarding and socially distance while riding.  

It is also asked that riders should use Metro only when essential at this time.
