FREE DTA RIDES CONTINUE THROUGH 2006
UMD students, faculty and staff will appreciate
free rides and improved bus service on campus this fall. The U-Bus is
not running this school year but two new DTA routes have been introduced
to provide direct service to campus from Superior Street and Fourth Street.
Direct service into UMD from the Woodland neighborhood has also been introduced.
The new East Fourth Street - UMD - Woodland Route
follows the current East Fourth Street routing to 24th Avenue East and
continues to upper Woodland along Woodland Avenue with a regular stop
A new East Mainline - UMD route has been introduced
to replace services along East Superior Street to 24th Avenue East, once
provided by the U-Bus. This new route provides half-hour bus service throughout
the day between downtown and UMD. This route originates along the west
mainline and will enable UMD students and staff living in the Lincoln
Park and Spirit Valley areas to take one bus directly to UMD without transferring
Weekday DTA services between Morley Heights and
UMD had been included as an extension of the new East Eighth Street -
UMD route, providing the three morning and three afternoon trips between
UMD and Morley Heights.
Accessible transportation assistance is available on the UMD Campus. Departments
are encouraged to arrange transportation for individuals with mobility
limitations at the same time they arrange their other University-sponsored
travel transportation needs. Possible sources for this transportation
