WICHITA, Kansas – Students going to Wichita State will have a new way to get to where they need to go.

Shuttle buses are running from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The service was started because one of the larger parking lots was closed because of ongoing construction projects.

The shuttles will run from the Hughes Metroplex at 29th and Oliver to the main campus.

Officials say it could be used for special events as well.

“We’re talking with athletics on how this might be used for example for home basketball games to provide a more convenient way for people to get to campus and away from campus after a home game,” said Barth Hague, WSU Chief Marketing Officer.

A total of four shuttle buses will be running.

Shelters will be built at the Metroplex and other campus stops.

Riders won’t need to show identification to ride the shuttle.
