Starting this spring semester, the free B-Line inter-campus shuttle will offer service to Jordan and Miller campuses, for a total of five campuses including South City, Meadowbrook and Taylorsville Redwood.
The new southbound route will connect Taylorsville Redwood Campus to Jordan and Miller campuses. The southbound bus arrives at and leaves Taylorsville on the half hour starting at 7:30 a.m., Jordan at 7:50 a.m. and Miller at 8:10 a.m. The bus’ last stop at Miller is at 4:10 p.m., Taylorsville Redwood at 4:30 p.m. and Jordan at 4:50 p.m.
“The faculty likes it. I get a lot of faculty from South Jordan and Miller campuses [that use the southbound shuttle] to make meetings at Redwood campus,” says B-Line shuttle driver Michael Powers.
While some passengers wish the buses would run more frequently than once an hour, most welcome and are grateful for the free shuttle service.
“I think it’s a really nice service. I think that it’s cool that it’s free. It’s cheaper and much more efficient than taking the city buses,” says Eric Packard, a biology student.
“My car is broke right now,” says student Matthew Taylor. “It’s easier than taking [a city] bus.”
The original northbound route continues to connect Taylorsville Redwood Campus to Meadowbrook and South City Campuses.
The bus arrives at and leaves South City campus every hour, Meadowbrook every 15 minutes past the hour and Taylorsville every half-hour.
“I think it’s great that they’re going all the way to Jordan for the people down there,” says Maggie Horton, an American Sign Language student.
The inter-campus shuttle service operates Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is open to all students, staff and faculty. Passengers are required to show their SLCC ID (One Card).
