New Bear Bus Route developed to help ease parking congestion
Frequent pick-ups to add convenience to parking in south campus lots
Oakland University Student Congress, the Oakland University Police Department and the Bear Bus team collaborated on an effort to relieve campus parking congestion and make it easier for commuting students to find a parking spot and get to class.
Starting Tuesday, Jan. 17, the new Bear Bus Express Route will travel from the P-35 and P-37 parking lots on the south side of campus and make stops at the Mathematics and Science Center and the Engineering Center. This shuttle will offer continuous point-to-point service from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
As an incentive to promote the new Express Route, riders will get a Bear Bus Express Rewards Card that will be redeemable for OU swag at the Student Congress office in the lower level of the Oakland Center.
Those wishing to learn more about the Bear Bus system, including full system routes and hours of operation, can do so by visiting Oakland.edu/bearbus. Riders wishing to get Express Route information can do that by calling the Black Lightning phone number at (248) 259-5247.
