On-Campus Shuttle Service
Does your community have a campus “shuttle” service for residents and if yes, how does it operate?

Yes we operate M-F from 9-5. We have a staff of three and 4 vehicles. Transportation is included in their monthly fee. We do charge extra if going to Charlotte or Winston. Residents simply call and make an appointment.

We do offer a free on campus shuttle service. The service has been running for about a year and a half and has evolved much over that time. Our current shuttle service runs Monday-Saturday from 8:30am-1:30pm and from 4:30pm-8:30pm. The shuttle drivers carry a designated cell phone and residents call for pick-up. Drivers also deliver meals and packages on campus. We have recently purchased a bus to replace the 10 passenger electric golf cart we are using now. We also offer a free local shuttle service on Tuesday mornings to destinations in the immediate neighborhood. Residents signup for a seat to ride. Feel free to give out my information if anyone has further questions.

Yes, we do have “shuttle” (actually a Ford Flex) that takes residents around campus. Our campus is on both sides of a 2 lane road so we have some 24/7 to take residents back and forth to the clinic, theater, whatever they may what or need to do on the side of campus they do not live on. It is manly utilized from 8AM until after dinner. However, we do have someone (security guard) that is responsible for pickups after “peak hours” .

We do have a shuttle service between campuses (since we are 1.5 miles apart) for special events. Each Wednesday we have a “Shuttle Service Loop” which goes to the local shopping areas, library, with pick up and drop offs at both campuses. These are posted drop off locations with times the shuttle leaves each of the locations. Residents who live on either campus can utilize that shuttle. It’s a new venture and not well utilized at this time, we hope it will gain acceptance/traction soon.

Right now we have transportation service by appointment only. We run shuttle service for on campus events where parking is limited. We request that resident call ahead to reserve a seat on the shuttle.
I hope this is helpful.

We have what is known as point to point service. We do not run a shuttle on a regular schedule but rather residents call the receptionist and request a pick up. We ask for advance notice whenever possible. It is usually the security staff that picks them up and takes them to their destination on campus.
