Changes made to TU shuttle system

In an effort to cut costs and promote sustainability, Temple has discontinued shuttle service from Main Campus to Temple Center City and the School of Podiatric Medicine, as well as late night and weekend shuttle service between the Main and Ambler campuses.

With the elimination of the Main Campus to TUCC to TUSPM route, a special shuttle bus for TUSPM students taking courses at the Health Sciences Center will operate during the fall semester. Director of Facilities Management Tom DiNardo said students, faculty and staff needing to go to Center City have access to alternate transportation such as SEPTA’s C Bus and Broad Street Subway Line.

The Ambler-Main Campus shuttle will continue to operate between 7 a.m, and midnight on Monday through Thursday. On Fridays, the last shuttle from Ambler to Main Campus will depart at 5:30 p.m., while the last shuttle from Main Campus to Ambler leaves at 6:30 p.m.

DiNardo said that Temple will continue its popular OWLoop shuttle service around the Main Campus, as well as the TUr Door service, which began last spring. TUr Door, which operates daily between 5:30 p.m. and 6 a.m., will take students from the main shuttle terminal at 12th and Berks Sts. directly to their door if they live within the area bounded by Cumberland Street on the north, Girard Avenue on the south, 5th Street on the east and 20th Street on the west.
